Ah, so perhaps I should follow this? I could keep it a repo
(as I rather have it there anyway).

We can have the tools/lib/traceevent be the main source, but then just
copy it to the stand alone for releases.

Sudip, would this work for you too? (and yes, I plan on acking that
patch for the -ldl change, after looking at it a little bit more).
