Dyn.load rather wants to link a whole library and I only wanted to

Welcome to the real world of porting software to R! 

I assume you are still on Windows. Believe me, by far the easiest way to do
this is to set up a small R package and build it using the instructions in
the README.packages file.  You can only use relocatable DLLs with R under
Windows (and only shared libraries on Unix).
