  Try the latest skalibs git. It doesn't install leapsecs.dat, the
leap second table is directly in the code, as you suggested.
That's a pretty massive simplification - at worst, something good
will have come of this. :)

  Then you'll need to find a solution for those; they're not
going away, and I want to keep the possibility of adding libexec
binaries and other stuff with fixed run-time paths.

  The best thing I can suggest is to maintain a set of patches so
the libexec binaries are exported in your installations: for every
package, edit package/targets.mak and move all the LIBEXEC_TARGETS
into BIN_TARGETS. Also grep all the source for occurrences of LIBEXEC
and change them to BIN. That should work. But that's some serious
maintainer work, and you won't be 100% compatible with other

  It will never fit entirely as is - you will have to patch stuff.
It's doable, but that's a lot of effort for a benefit I still don't
