Depending on which run-time you mean, yes.  I don't think it should be 
possible to load extensions from within a PHP script.

Note that dl() never really behaved properly.  It was always broken to one 
degree or another.  Also, it'll be completely unavailable in the thread 
safe version of PHP, so we might as well deprecate it completely.
Loading extensions in the php.ini file is still very much possible.
