Been there, done that.. ;-)

If you do want to get this working, without rebuilding a ton of things,
you can use 'ar' to extract the contents of DynaLoader.a, then use 'gcc
--shared *.o -o' on the .o files you get to make the
shared library.

Perhaps a pre-install script in the XChat rpm could do this for you?

Just a thought..
