  just running `cvs update` now ;)

  normal call of libm/cos would be :

(defCfun "double call_cos(double rad)" 0 " return ( cos(rad) ); " )
(defentry static-cos (double) (double call_cos))

  now those bindings need to change, if using the gcl-elf-loader, like :

(elf::use-lib 'libm "libm.so.6")

(defCfun "double call_d1d(int prt, double rad)" 0
  "double (*callptr)(double); callptr=prt; return ( (*callptr)(rad) );" )
(defentry call-d1d (int double) (double call_d1d))

(defun dyn-sin (rad) (call-d1d (elf::use-sym 'libm '|sin|) rad))
(defun dyn-cos (rad) (call-d1d (elf::use-sym 'libm '|cos|) rad))
(defun dyn-tan (rad) (call-d1d (elf::use-sym 'libm '|tan|) rad))
(defun dyn-asin (rad) (call-d1d (elf::use-sym 'libm '|asin|) rad))
(defun dyn-acos (rad) (call-d1d (elf::use-sym 'libm '|acos|) rad))
(defun dyn-atan (rad) (call-d1d (elf::use-sym 'libm '|atan|) rad))
  So the file could be compile and linked by the bfd loader, as it
  does'nt contain any external references, but only references back
  to the static linked elf::use-lib and elf::use-sym. This could be
  done since 2.6.0, when bfd loading on linux/i386/elf was improved.
  The libraries are not realy persistent, but the package provides
  its own elf::save-system, that is raising a flag, to re'dlopen the
  libraries. The other drawback is of course speed, as every call
  of (dyn-cos would run a lot of lisp to constrain state.

  <vapor:ware comming="rsn">
  The syntax of using the elf-loader will be improved by a macro.
  This macro will be able to produce both kind of bindings, to
  provide backward compatibility for linking a static gcl.
