No, there is a -c arg that bypass config files (i.e. what crle governs), but 
that only makes ldd fall back to the fixed system default, which is 
/lib:/usr/lib. Also, turning off default search path would also exclude valid 
linked libs on that path.

I take back the comment about multimedia/ffmpeg or devel/poco - I can't 
reproduce those any more. Also, I can't seem to trigger the issue on NetBSD - 
because I can't find a match between the native lib names/versions and their 
respective pkgsrc alternatives.

I *was* able to reproduce on NetBSD when I symlinked /usr/lib/ to 
/usr/lib/, which matches the version in the archivers/bzip2; that 
made it show up in REQUIRES. (An unlikely example, but still.)

So it seems to be largely a case on Solaris, where typically many more native 
libs are present, yet the user is likely to prefer pkgsrc packages. Do you have 
concrete objections to the patch besides "works for me" or "not needed on 
NetBSD"? Should I wrap in OPSYS-based conditional?
