Getting rid of -r /usr/X11R6/lib

[Followups redirected to debian-devel]

Some packages in hamm have been linked with the -r /usr/X11R6/lib 
option and break on a libc6 system with the new libc6 X libraries 

This perl script will patch these programs and make them work:

=========== BEGIN SCRIPT
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

# Open file
open IN, "$ARGV[0]" or die "can't find $ARGV[0]: $!";

# Read it in one slurp
select IN;
undef $/;
select STDOUT;
close IN;

# Remove this string
print "Replaced: $count occurences in $ARGV[0]\n";

# Write the file
open OUT, ">$ARGV[0].out" or die "can't write $ARGV[0].out: $!";
print OUT $file;
close OUT;
=========== END SCRIPT

It's been working with emacs, xpmroot (package fvwm-common), fvwm2.
All these programs now work like a charm (and got bugs assigned :-).

Note: You should get one and only one replacement, otherwise it 
indicates something's gone wrong.
