What exactly do you mean by dynamic libraries?
Note that there is no point in having shared libraries in RTEMS.
These objects make sense only when processes with different
address spaces want to share code. RTEMS, since it is a hard RTOS
must not use virtual memory - it has a flat memory address space
shared among all threads in the system.
When you load a simple old-fashioned "static" library into an
RTEMS system it "automatically" becomes shared.
