proftpd should use dlopen to only open the library when needed. :)

Maybe it would be a good thing to tell the elf loaders to not give up
when runtime linking fails but to give a segfault when a function that 
failed to link is used.

That way you could start proftpd without the sql lib and it would work 
unless you use the sql parts.

May the Source be with you.
