+sub dl_load_flags { 0x01 }

Wow !! I didn't realize that things were *that* simple on nix type operating systems. (I've just checked on my old mandrake-9.1 box, and things really *are* that simple.) There's certainly more than that required on Windows - though I realise that's probably something that's not an issue for the OP.

For a start, on Win32 we need to have the dll export the symbols - hence the usefulness of 'FUNCLIST'. (I was forgetting that probably wouldn't be an issue on most other operating systems.)

Secondly, on windows, there's a need to be able to resolve all symbols at compile-time. But, on my linux box, I've just realised there's no such condition to be met. As an example, the following Inline::C script runs fine on linux, but fails to build on windows:
use warnings; use Inline C => <<'EOC'; void extern crap(); void foo() { crap(); } EOC print "Compiled fine";
On linux (with gcc) that outputs simply Compiled fine, but on windows (using the MinGW port of gcc) the build phase fails with:
try_pl_d349.o:try_pl_d349.c:(.text+0x5): undefined reference to `crap' collect2: ld returned 1 exit status dmake: Error code 129, while making 'blib\arch\auto\try_pl_d349\try_p +l_d349.dll
This is, no doubt, old news to many here ... but the starkness of the differences took me somewhat by surprise.

Cheers,
Rob
