Good points.

A non-root user won't be installing libraries (i.e. copying them to
where the system wants them and looks for them). For that reason, and
to run it only when necessary, I'd put it right after those copy
instructions. However, my lack of python-fu and scons-fu preclude me
even from finding that location.

A good test for whether ldconfig is present or not might be whereis.
Assuming the local system has whereis. I don't know enough about other
systems to answer that one.

Also, how does this affect cross-compilations?

So at this point, my inclination is to not pursue it.

Does anybody read signatures any more?
