[erlang-bugs] Mac OS X dyld chokes on libei.a

I'm not sure if this is a bug in libei or OpenMCL[1].

When I try to dynamically load libei.a in OpenMCL (through CFFI[2]), I
get this error:
Error opening shared library
"/usr/local/lib/erlang/lib/erl_interface-": dyld:
/Users/markus/openmcl/ccl/dppccl malformed library:
/usr/local/lib/erlang/lib/erl_interface- (not a
Mach-O file, bad magic number)

According to Google, this error means the library is not properly built.

I have Mac OS X 10.3, Erlang/OTP R11B-5 (built from source), and OpenMCL 1.0.
