this is getting ridiculous, what liboil does is definitely the right
thing to do, for a number of reasons. First of all being that the
original developer is likely the most knowledgeable person to handle
this problem. By putting that burden onto the packager or worse the
enduser, who are more often than not clueless about such issues, you
will have a lot of noise in your support channels (irc/mail) of people
that will keep asking the same questions and who will have the same
problems all over again and again. This ... is ... Madness. ;-)
