Ubuntu is currently using this wrapper to get gxine started:

Would this be acceptable to you for inclusion into gxine upstream? I

I *guess* something more appropriate would be to use an RPATH on the
gxine binary here, but I didn't look into this more closely.

no need for that, you can use debian's dpkg-source utility to extract
ubuntu source packages, too.
