Whoa, I guess I hit a nerve.  I saw several messages from you over the
years on this issue.  Now that they went back to ldd, well, I'm not
actually too interested in the code details.  I am interested in getting
something in upstream that works for the Hurd.

They seem pretty busy, whatever.  Writing a good patch that someone can
apply seems a good approach to me.

I got the dpkg CVS code and patched it.  I can't see how to wrap it with
a minimal amount of perl logic (an oxymoron?) to make it at least a
reasonble workaround to propose committing.  The last CVS version is
dated June 20th, 2001 by doogie.  Maybe he would help with getting this
Hurd modification into the CVS.  Or course by getting it into the CVS it
later gets into the upstream packages.

I'd rather not worry about "what ifs" at this point.
