For portable NGINX-based applications, for example, we only want to
ensure that some modules are *present*, like ngx_http_lua_module, and
we do not care about whether it is linked statically or dynamically.
We are only concerned about its presence. If the modules we need are
not statically linked, we want to dynamically load them. It's this
simple :) I don't think it's reasonable to use a dynamic version of a
module if it is already statically linked, is it?
