The dvdread check in configure requires 'dynamic loader' to be found, if 
it isn't it just sets _dvdread=no. My particular build environment 
doesn't have dlfcn.h/libdl (MSYS2/mingw-w64) by default but libdvdread 
includes one in its source.

No other library seems to explicitly require libdl even though they 
check for it, so I haven't seen a need to add it to my build environment.
