I am using the dev directory found in mbxroot_min_tgz so I am 
assuming this is ok.

Does any one know if all of a program's dynamic libraries are loaded
upon startup of it or are they just loaded when needed? I think it is
the later so the clue of not seeing all the library read (looking at
tcpdump) does not tell anything.

I try to put a printf at the beginning of init but it does not
show up. I guess this does not say much...

Other idea(s)?
