Good call - there's always a catch though isn't there ;-) Just
overwriting strings in the binaries sounds like a good idea. Then
there's also random regular text files too.

Crossdev can be easily patched to work 'properly', and glibc / gcc
have a bit of spots that need to be massaged, but otherwise it's
doable (I can say that now that I've had to do it a couple of times).

So is there any momentum for eprefixed binaries? I.e. something of a
stage3? It seems like it will always be an ongoing battle, but string
substitution probably eliminates a large part of that.

Cheers,

C
