Found it!

In libtool's documentation: GNU DLD (emulates dynamic linking for
static libraries)

>From http://www.gnu.org/software/dld/dld.html:

`Dld' is a library package of C functions that performs `dynamic link
editing'. Programs that use dld can add or remove compiled object code
from a process anytime during its execution. Loading modules,
searching libraries, resolving external references, and allocating
storage for global and static data structures are all performed at run

There seems to be a copy, version 3.3, (1996) at

However, this software seems to be suffering from the lack of a
maintainer (or the web page just hasn't been updated).

On 6-May-1999, Gordon Matzigkeit <gord@trick.fig.org> said in
<86wvym8sit.fsf@trick.fig.org> on the libtool mailing list:

[Actually, I don't even know who ended up implementing libltdl... I
was going to make something like it the basis for GNU DLD 4.0, but
that project is now without a maintainer.  I hope somebody takes up
that torch sometime.]

It looks interesting software, but unless version 4 (with supposed
major updates) has already been released, seems rather dead. :-(

I might try and contact Gordon, and see what happened to it.
