Need advice with gridengine 6.2 and "libcore"



Gridengine 6.2 make uses of a helper library on Linux to ensure that coredumps are always performed. A discussion of the issue can be found here:

http://gridengine.sunsource.net/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2552

The solution provided is to add a wrapper library called "libcore" that basically wraps the set[e][gu]id function calls and makes sure prctl(PR_SET_DUMPABLE,1,42,42,42); is called each time.

This ends up with a "libcore.so" in %{_libdir}, which seems like a really bad idea.

I've checked it the current setup but have not built it into the release. Scratch build is here:

Suggestions for:

- a better workaround.
- a better location/name for libcore.so.
- ?

are much appreciated.
