[S] loading C code function on Irix 6.5 UNIX system (2nd query)

Thanks much for the responses to my first query.
Again, this problem is specifically for SGI IRIX 6.5 UNIX system.

(To mathsoft engineers: Have you configured out this problem for
the new operating system Irix 6.5 of SGI?)

My original question was:

> I'm working on S-PLUS 3.4 under SGI IRIX 6.5.
> I want to load a C coded function, but dyn.load and dyn.load2
> are not available in this platform.

The responses were, in large, two approaches:

A. for static loading, compile my code with careful flags as
error messages suggest

B. for dynamic loading, use "dyn.load.shared" function

I haven't been successful in both ways.
For A, I have experimented several options in S_makefile
under $SHOME/newfun/lib, but they didn't work well.

For B, I have compiled my C-code with:

discover 56% Splus SHLIB -o test.so test.c

targets= -f /opt/SHOME/newfun/lib/S_soMakefile test.so
make -f /opt/SHOME/newfun/lib/S_makefile -f
/opt/SHOME/newfun/lib/S_soMakefile test.so "SHLIB=test.so" "OBJS= test.o"
cc -c -I${SHOME-`Splus SHOME`}/include -cckr -O1 test.c
ld -o test.so -shared test.o

So, I have "test.so" shared library object at the current directory

2. On S-PLUS command line at the current directory, I tried to load it in:

SPLUS> dyn.load.shared("./test.so")

Error in .C("S_QPE_shobjlist_load",: Can't load (dlopen) library ./test.so:
260720:/opt/SHOME/cmd/Sqpe: rld: Fatal Error: Cannot Successfully map
soname './test.so' under any of the filenames ./test.so
Error was while calling subroutine "S_QPE_shobjlist_load"

Even I tried the absolute path way like
but "test.so" object was not still found yet.
Hope you can easily point me out what I did wrong.
If anyone has been successful for this kind of trial under the Irix 6.5
system, would you provide me a simple example of your commands (for compiling
C-codes and loading it into S-PLUS 3.4)?
