   Maybe you already fixed that but...
   In there's a NetBSD section that seems incomplete
wrt. how one links a builtin dll. And this might be related to your
problem. See thos lines:

      if test "$ac_cv_c_dll_netbsd" = "yes"
        LDSHARED="\$(CC) -Wl,-Bshareable,-Bforcearchive"
        LDDLLFLAGS="" #FIXME  <--- doesn't look good

 The greatest programming project of all took six days; on the seventh day the
  programmer rested. We've been trying to debug the *&^%$#@ thing ever since.
                      Resume: design before you implement.
