If I can help, I'll be happy to do so.
My friend Brett Neumeier has already modified Benkmann's scripts a
little and these are exactly what I use on my CLFS systems:
git clone git://freesa.org/package-users
(And includes a little more verbose description of my ldconfig trick.)
I wish you the very best of luck!
P.S.: I certainly think Package Users is about the best thing since LFS,
and I wonder if any big distro will take the idea to heart.
Fundamentally there is no reason why a Binary Package Management System
couldn't *also* take a page from Benkmann's very clever idea.
