    An app to add an rpath?

    Anyone know of an app that allows you to add an rpath to an elf that wasn't linked with one? I know of chrpath but that can only modify, not create. The source of the app I am running is not available to recompile.
    I'm using LD_LIBRARY_PATH right now to run it (so I'm not heart broken)--however it would be more convenient in this case for me to just give the app an rpath and I figure a handy tool to have laying around for awkward issues such as this.

    Thanks.

    Get the source code for chrpath, examine it and add that functionality.
    http://freshmeat.net/projects/chrpath/ says it's still being developed, so now's your chance to contribute
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
