Thomas, All,

On 2018-12-28 11:43 +0100, Thomas Petazzoni spake thusly:
> As suggested by Arnout Vandecappelle, let's document the
> elf_needs_rpath() and check_elf_has_rpath() functions, before we make
> them a bit more complicated with per-package directory support.

Missing 'one', i.e.:  ... at least one of the libraries...
