In the remote case I suppose it is. The linker on the remote will have
loaded /lib/libc.so.2 or some such but on the host, that will be
$QNX_TARGET/$CPU/lib/libc.so.2. Hence solib-absolute-prefix being set to
$QNX_TARGET/$CPU. I'm just looking for better ways to get this all to work
together with a minimum of fuss for the end user.
