Is that different from linux.if.usp.br /debian ?

Unfortunately this is not as well-bounded a problem as a text diff.
The reason is that when a program is re-linked, adding a single
instruction or a byte of data may change a large number of address
references in the program. You might use "cmp -l" between two versions
of the same program to see how much of a problem this is.
