This can be easily solved with metadata, or a sort of "registry" that keeps track of where the libraries are. Any security problem and a program would just follow a tree, updating everything.
Sure, this creats the problem of multiple copies and a larger update. But that's the price you pay to keep installations as free as possible from dependency-hell. Dependency-hell kills. Look what it did to Debian.
UNIX-to-the-core fans will scream. But then again, UNIX-hardcore people: 1) are mostyl network guys; 2) only code in C.
Some people have other type of work to do besides setting up a firewall, and distros, particularly Linux, SUCK in the software installation thing.
Kudos for PC-BSD! UNIX FOR THE PEOPLE!
