Hi Rolf, Rajib,

The configure.in file has but you need to dig in a bit.  Given Rajib's
configure command, the --enable-preload options defaults to "auto".  In
that case, preloading is only enabled when you disable dynamic loading
or disabled shared libraries.  The default is to build shared libraries
*and* enable dynamic loading so preloading will not be enabled.

Just run ./configure with the --enable-preload option if that's what you
really want.
