-rwxr-xr-x   1 yvon  yvon    784364 Mar 26 10:00 libdb-4.2.dylib
-rw-r--r--   1 yvon  yvon       814 Mar 26 10:00
lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel       15 Mar 26 10:03 libdb-4.dylib ->
-rw-r--r--   1 root  wheel  1301688 Mar 26 10:03 libdb.a
lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel       15 Mar 26 10:03 libdb.dylib ->

and /usr/lib....

i'd like not to stay with an hybrid solution calling perl script from
