Damn. This is quite hard to solve properly at kernel level. Perhaps
modify the suse packages to install symlinks from linux lib to
usr/lib ? Or do this for libm at least. Or perhaps modify entries
in the compat to contain the emul prefix and make sure
the is rebuilt whenever compat pkg with libs is installed?
