Thanks, I've seen this error printout before, but I've never 
had the energy to track it down. 

The code that's trying to link is the etk linked-in driver.
etk can run in two modes, one with an external unix process
interpreting the etk commands, and on with a linked-in driver
running in a thread interpreting all the commands.

If the linked-in driver doesn't exist (Which will be the case
when the above link command fails), it's perfectly ok to
run etk in an external unix process. This is also the default
behavior when etk:start() is called.

Cheers and thanks,
