I've tried this, and you have problems with the apps already being
linked not only against libgtk-2.0.so.x.y.z, but also the closure of
the dependencies which it had at link-time. So if the X11 version of
Gtk was staged at the time your app linked, the references to
libx11.so will exist its its binary.
Is there some way to suppress this eager resolution of transitive
shared library dependencies?
