It SHOULD contain only functions in RHOME/library, as this file serves
only as a default fallback. The complete list should be built at
runtime (using all in .lib.loc) and this works for me. However, there
is a problem if installing as root (or whoever is allowed to write to
RHOME) to someplace different than RHOME ... I'll dig into that
tomorrow (I've got to leave in 10 minutes).
