Well, you had to configure those thousand systems to mount /usr/foo, so
why didn't you modify their run-time linker paths at the same time, to
add /usr/foo/lib? That would seem like the most sensible thing to have
done, then you wouldn't have to use LD_RUN_PATH. Maybe it would only
have been a couple of extra lines in a script, too.
