Well, I'd rather be part of the solution than part of the problem ...
So, first off .. I see that the libtool cyrus-sasl is using is version
1.3.5. Right now libtool is at version 2.2.6. So ... upgrading would
probably be a first step that should be pretty simple. The
documentation (for 2.2.6) claims that dlopen()ing a module should work,
and that the -R option should do the right thing. I could test that out
and see what happens.
