hi joerg,

i certainly do not know where your problem originates, but you still can
check against what is a program linked with the "ldd" command. care,
don't run it cross-platform. use the linux ldd for linux programs, all
in a "linux compatibility" environment.

then, i still wonder how did those scripts recognize the package as
FreeBSD, for the first thing!
