The problem here is how to make on-demand load of modules work on all
the supported platforms. My feeling is that it would be a non-trivial
problem. If you are aware of any viable solution, let us know.

Agreed. Have a look at Dirk's packaging script for SuSE/RHEL
(/dists/suse/zeromq.spec) - it's done exactly this way.

What's the common practice here? Istalling example source code or
installing source code + binaries?
