It's one way of doing it. It would leave a majority of users with manual 
changes to their optionlist in simfactory, because the default isn't 
working. I don't want to go that way. If we do, I would vote to add 
those to LIBS already in simfactory, and add to the release notes that 
if you happen to use the debian (or also redhat I believe) optionlists 
on something else than Linux, you better remove those.

If we don't include the linux-query (perl) code in the release, I also 
think we shouldn't include at all, but instead properly fix the library 
list. We can query the library after it has been built. All we need to 
do is to make it possible to tell Cactus about those.
