The dl_dld.xs file makes no use of any of the probing done by Configure -
for example, it unconditionally includes <dld.h> instead of wrapping it in
C pre-processor macros. So we don't need to re-instate the probes.

Also, no other platform is using dld, so if we put the file back as
dl_mint.xs, I believe that Configure (as-is) will automatically pick it up
for MiNT. ($osname is set to 'mint', correct?)

That keeps Configure simpler, without stopping MiNT working.
