Windows is not supported as a remote target, but it's indeed not  
correct for all unix targets either. The prefix of a library is always  
"lib" on all targets, afaik. The suffix is available via  
dynlibs.SharedSuffix. The downside of using the dynlibs unit is that  
it makes the dotest program dependent on libdl (and hence libc) on  
Linux-targets. I'm not sure about how to best solve this...
