RuntimeLoader now works on Mac OS X

Thanks to the amazing work by Wolfgang Thaller on GHC for Mac OS
X, it was trivial to port the RuntimeLoader to work on Mac OS
X (or Darwin, if you want to be pedantic).  

The runtime loader enables a GHC program to load object files
(.o) at runtime and load functions in them, much like how you can
dlopen() a shared library on many Unixes.

For more information on the runtime loader, see

    http://www.algorithm.com.au/wiki/hacking/haskell.ghc_runtime_loading

It's been tested and verified with GHC 5.04.2 on Mac OS X, and
GHC 5.04 on Linux.  If it works on Windows (and there's a good
chance it might), please let me know!
