Native libs on Android have a few restrictions - they need to start with "lib", end in ".so" and may not contain tilde ('~'). At the moment apps using pd on Android work around this problem by renaming files, putting them into a zip archive and unzipping this archive when the app starts.

It would be nice to be able to load them directly from the app's lib directory. The attached patch changes the loader so that when resolving "z~" it will also look for "libz_tilde.so" in the current search path.
