I found the reason why I had a weird crashing bug in the XPLC test suite on some versions of Linux. Seems that an older glibc crashes upon dlopen()ing an ELF executable. Updated the FAQ with the most recent information. I suppose I'll just tell people to update their glibc...

Weak symbols seem to be not quite all what I thought they'd be. It seems that identical redundant symbols from different compilation units just get concatenated? I might just as well use "static" variables (I was trying to save space)!

Also managed to get my makefiles auto-dependencies working both with gcc2 and gcc3. I think I'll get around to doing a new release tomorrow.
