Things like f-prot are shipped statically linked, when in their
binary form for OpenBSD. And binary compatibility only goes so
far either in GNU/Linux… (luckily, we have VMs now). This is
especially true for Debian: try to install binary *.deb from
various people, or to build AOSP (Android) on Debian… Multi-Arch
also introduced lots of fun…
