   How about we do this:
       *	use absolute symlinks for the runtime libraries and
       *	use relative symlinks for the link-time library
   This would result in:
   	usr/lib/		-> ../../lib/
   	usr/lib/	-> /lib/
   	usr/lib/	-> /lib/

good idea.

i'm not sure that the usr/lib/lib/ is actually necessary
even? will load .so.M which has always been a symlink to the
real thing, and here it doesn't point to the symlink of the real thing,
but the real thing... i don't think usr/lib/ links to
/lib are required in any case..?
