Without the patch, for instance 'expat' has /usr/lib/ (or

BTW, you should look at getting the readelf based shared library check
to work for Solaris, since it is more precise and reliable.

Thanks, but that's not a good option IMO. readelf is not a guaranteed
part of the SunOS platform. And bringing in devel/binutils opens
a different can of worms.

Solaris has no tools to extract the necessary data directly in the base
installation? It doesn't have to be readelf. I.e. what is needed is

There is elfdump, but I don't see how it helps in this case. The only information you can 
get from NEEDED are the base names of the libraries, and RPATH reports (typically) the 
single ${PREFIX}/lib path, so you can't get a full list of "what's required from 
where", let alone identify which libs are to be ignored for the REQUIRES meta, for 
they are in fact part of the PROVIDES meta.

Or am I missing something?

pkgsrc/pkgtools/bootstrap-extras/files/fakeldd-Haiku may help you.

Haiku does not have `ldd', then use `objdump' to read NEEDED and RPATH, and
print as `ldd' doing (LIBRARY_PATH environment variable has default library 
search path).
