    • fix darwin DynaLoader patch for older perls
    • The patch that was taken from blead uses a <<$^OS-eq-darwin>> preprocessing token, which is handled by the DynaLoader_pm.PL script. Older versions of DynaLoader_pm.PL don't include this preprocessing, but the patch still applies.
    • In our case, the preprocessing is a check for darwin. But the patch is already only applied on darwin, so it is redundant. We can just remove the preprocessing token, and it should work across all versions.
