You're checking the version stamp in spice-char.so.  I'd think that's good
enough.  No need to transitively check.

Or add DT_RUN_PATH to the main executable, or even add DT_RUN_PATH to the
module itself.  In particular, link the module with

  -Wl,--enable-new-dtags -Wl,-rpath,'$ORIGIN'

and dependencies for the module will automatically be looked for in the
directory in which the module is found.  Which is almost certiainly the only
thing that we want -- all modules in the same directory.
