Also be aware that building with WITH_CTF can/will break buildworld:
There were also some problems mentioned with rtld breaking when a user
introduced WITH_CTF to his buildworld. (Possibly the rtld build is
static and that would explain it; not sure).
My point is: be aware and wary before enabling this. :-)
