Actually, the options for that are in the loading of the .so files, which 
is in Pd's s_loader.c, and that uses the RTLD_GLOBAL option in the 
dlopen() command, and that is required so that GEM<->PDP, GF<->GEM and 
GF<->PDP connectors work (as they are implemented now).

And the platform-dependency of that, is explaining the weird hacks we had 
to do (Patrice Colet and I), to make GF<->GEM work properly on Windows, 
because the Windows code probably doesn't use an equivalent of 
RTLD_GLOBAL, and/or something to do with __declspec(dllexport) and 
__declspec(dllimport)... does anyone compile third-party GEM externals in 
a way not linked to Gem.DLL ? Because that would be an example for how to 
improve that aspect of GF...
