I actually seriously considered writing something like this myself
at the end of October (i found myself in a situation where i had
porting the 80+ required libraries, only to find out that the
tree i was using at the time could no longer be used, so i had to redo
everything again from scratch). Grrrr. Nuff said.
But then i also thought, if i go down this path, what's next. This can
only work if strlen (target RPATH) <= strlen (source RPATH), otherwise
I think this would be interesting to do as a side project, for fun,
i would not recommend this as a practical solution.
Just my 2c. :-)
