How is this connected? tlmgr does not change any binaries till now,
AFAIS. It is only about the compilation problem.

We once had a discussion on tlbuild how to *actually* determine which
libs are loaded by inspecting the ELF header, not using ldd.
Maybe someting like
	readelf -a dvipdfmx | grep -i "shared library"
or also 
	readelf --version-info  dvipdfmx

Best wishes

A person who looks around then when talking to you, to see if there's
anyone more interesting about.
