I don't see any particular reason to abandon 10.2 at all, as long as
all it's costing us is a couple dozen lines in dynloader/darwin.c.
As for back-porting, I don't see a strong reason to do that either.
Apple will presumably maintain the compatibility APIs for a long
while yet.

I realized that configure is already probing for dlopen(), so I just
used HAVE_DLOPEN.  We can add a separate test for the header file if
it proves really necessary, but I bet it's not.
