I've used libmap.conf and read the man, but I'm still not clear how to
do this. Sorry - am a relative newbie, and this is still confusing to

OK, exactly how is this accomplished?

Sorry for my naivete, but the convention used in libmap.conf doesn't
make sense to me.
I'm also unclear on how to check which programs use which libraries.
