Cross-platform dynamic library...library?

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good cross-platform (and, equally or more importantly, cross-compiler) C++ library that worries about loading dynamic libraries and resolving symbols.  

I know about dlopen, dlsym for Linux, LoadLibrary() and GetProcAddress() for Windows, etc. but I would like something that sufficiently abstracts these things away from the platform/compiler.  I'm sad to say, I definitely miss the Java classloaders now that I'm back in C++ for a little while, so I figured I'd look around to see if there is anything else in C++ with similar functionality.

Thanks for your help!
