    SubjectRe: The disappearing sys_call_table export.
    From

    pls read my reply to alan carefully .

    Doing own malloc(), free(), m[un]map(), is a possibility we've
    considered. Since we've got our own lib linked with the app, we probably
    wouldn't even need LD_PRELOAD. our main issue is that not everything is
    gcc/g77.

    Of all the approaches the syscall traps was the least intrusive and most
    portable of all, belive it or not.

    BTW: this is all technical issues.
