ACK, that would be the quickest and easiest solution.
And I have a very strange feeling with changing ldd's lookup
semantics, beginning with serious security considerations.

But: if the application bundle should be entirely self-contained,
why using dynamic linking (of non-system-libaries) at all ?

Actually, I'm entirely not convinces of the concept of self-
contained applications at all. Sooner or later they will have to
integrate/communicate with some other application (eg. beginning
with tiny things like adding some menu entry or icon), and this
will require some top-down coordination. And that's exactly the
point where distributions come in.
