One word about runtime loading and libtool on AIX.

Starting from AIX 4.x there is an dlopen()/.. interface. It works fine. But for
some obscure reasons runtime loading is only partially supported when not
using the -brtl link option wich is available first on AIX 4.3 (-brtl does not
work with DCE); libtool does not use the -brtl option for linking. The
partially support especially means that dlsym() for a symbol located in main
module (executable) will not work.

So the gmodule test fails because it try to lookup a symbol in executable.

* If any component stick to g_module_open(NULL, ...) it will not work on AIX.
  h = g_module_open(NULL, ...);
  sym = g_module_symbol(h, "anything", ...);
  sym is always NULL

* Could module-test.c be rewritten not to use own symbols?
