A similar trick works on the Mac when different programs insist on their own
version of a dynamically linked library. Put the new (or most commonly
used) version of the DLL in the system extension folder and place the other
DLL in the same folder as the application that requires the incompatible
DLL. On the Mac there is no need for the *.local file.
