It breaks badly on FreeBSD, because ldd doesn't work on shared libraries. It
sounds like it has a small difficulty with the output format on NetBSD. That's
what the patch addresses.

The difference has to do with the ELF implementations, which apparently were
done independently. I may try to port the NetBSD ldd sometime, but I have
dpkg-shlibdeps working ok with ldconfig.
