  SDL by itself does not implement cross-platform DSO (Dynamic Shared 
Objects), though it is planned for SDL 1.3.  In the mean time, you do 
have a few options.
	1) Import code for PLib: plib.sourceforge.net (C++)
	2) Use a C cross platform toolkit.  GTK+ and NSPR come to mind.

The Linux equivelents are:
	dlopen(), dlclose(), dlsym().

These work on most UNIX systems.

Hope this helps,
