Speaking from my experience only, I've moved (ported is not the word)
some code for reading symbols out of elf files that used libelf from
HPUX to Linux ia32 and ia64 using this library both on Debian and RedHat
(using the rpms available at for RedHat ia32 and ia64).

No source changes were necessary, it worked "out of the box."  That says
something for the standards aspect of this "wrong" software.

I hope the replacement that RedHat is working on will produce the same
excellent results.
