No. Dynamic loading is through mmap(), not read(). The Condor standard
universe doesn't support mmap() (except for a special case) and so you
can't use it to load in dynamic libraries from the submit machine. 
Furthermore, jobs in the standard universe are always linked statically, so
they never use dynamic libraries.
