Implement a few changes to how shared libraries and dynamically

Seems this patch has broken all the Windows buildfarm animals ... is
anybody on that?
Not all, only those that use the Makefile build system, i.e. MSVC is
not failing, but MinGW and Cygwin are.
Specifically, we are failing thus during initdb:
creating conversions ... FATAL: could not access file
"$libdir/ascii_and_mic": No such file or directory
I can't immediately see the cause, although presumably it's the
changes in Makefile.shlib that have done it.
Maybe we need to set up a Windows machine or two somewhere so that
committers can test out stuff like this ...
I offered this before, and nobody was interested at the time. I don't
have the resources to do it right now if it would be interesting now,
but I think we can put one up in a VM on one of the community managed
servers actually - as long as you don't need performance, that's
(I don't have a working mingw env at all right now, still
working on setting up a proper VM with windows + msvc since
changing job, so I can't look at this specific issue right now
