Sorry, I didn't follow what you were trying to do.  I just do
build/install of each package in the chain.  If the .so version
changes, then the old one is there, and if not then it must be ABI
compatible (right Jan??)...  I haven't lost from installing new
lwp/rpc2/rvm libraries - all the pain is in venus anyway.  But

  I'm pretty sure that the --with-lwp-includes option and friends are
  exactly what I need.
