Change subject: util: adds the feature to force the rpath when patching files.

Patch Set 1:

Ok so the summary IIUC is that you need --force-rpath because the toolchain/loader in the old kernel is not acting properly, as explained in "man patchelf":

Forces the use of the obsolete DT_RPATH in the file instead of DT_RUNPATH. By default DT_RPATH is converted to DT_RUNPATH

Now, I'm still asking myself whether it's really needed to do this in OGT itself.
As far as I understand, you are building a special "inst" (trial) with binaries for that machine right? That means to me it makes much more sense to put these bits into the jobs building the "inst" archive. I see 2 possiblities:
1- Run the "patchelf --force-rpath --set-rpath /mnt/fns/bdlibs/" when generating the "inst", on each binary, since basically the path of where the libs are for the system your are building for is known at that time.
2- Move all the libs from /mnt/nfs/bdlibs to the "inst/lib" directory instead, so you have all non-system libraries needed there for that trial.

Can you give a try to option 1 and/or provide any feedback if you see any issue with the proposal?
