That's my idea, sorry not having made it clear enough.  We have $libdir
which is expanded server-side AFAIUI, I though we would have $shlib
expanded the same way and taken from some backend variable like with

static backend variable so that EXT_CONTROL(module_pathname) is easy to
find out from anywhere (I see you got rid of some direct usage of static
variables with recordDependencyOnCurrentExtension() already).
