Gnucash is no longer using gnc-module itself but the gnc-module interface is 
still present though. So in theory we still support user-built custom gnc-
modules. Would they still work after your change on MacOS ?

If not, we should either just drop gnc-module completely (which Derek opposed 
IIRC) or clearly document the extra  steps the user should take to make it 
work, which IIUC on MacOS means setting (DY)LD_LIBRARY_PATH such that the 
custom gnc-module is found.
