I don't know what you packaging script look like, but removing OUTPATH
will not make set_soenv.in any substantially simpler. and no matter
how hard you try there will be the nedd for per-platform value.

how hard would it be for your packaging script to take advantage of
Env.Host.sh ? you could get OUTPATH (1) (and/or any other similar
variables) from there and then LD_LIBRARY_PATH=xxxx/$OUTPATH/xxx

No need to maintain a separate list...


(1) eval $(grep "^OUTPATH=" Env.Host.sh)
