I have seen that too- it *seems* to work if you:

1.  use the "old" raw format types "d", "f", "s", etc
2.  when you first write some data with getdata-0.5.0, put the "/ENCODING none" 
line in the format file.
3.  after some data exists, comment out the encoding line with a "#" 
4.  now both getdata and kst will happily use the dirfile.

I have not investigated this at all in the source.  Obviously the solution is 
for the dirfile datasource to use the external library if a configure check finds 
it.  I recall some email traffic about this and general agreement.  Other people 
can comment on the status of that- I'm sorry I have not been following that 
thread of conversation...
