Why including this in the package, how common is libtool?

I get a core dump when doing this.  Well, I get it when not doing this
as well. :)

In load_all_handlers(), NULL prefix is given to load_handler() when
loading handlers from directory, which is not really welcome in

Actually, loading handlers from HANDLERS_DIRECTORY shouldn't be
performed at all when handlers are compiled in.

Also, it would be nice to have a configure option that will do all
above things when user wants to have a self-contained executable.  And
then skip installing handlers all together.
