GNU objcopy --- but it's a bit *too* general; you'd need to extract the
.dynamic section, edit it using some binary editing tool, and re-add it.
I doubt there are any tools of the kind you're looking for because the
details are too different between different systypes; even if someone
had developed one, it's just as likely to be for Linux or Solaris as for
*BSD, and as a result wouldn't be particularly useful.
