That doesn't seem very feasible if I want the patched versions to be
used by multiple programs and install those programs on any system
besides my own.

I've tried simply renaming all the library and header files, and that
has failed so miserably that the result seems to defy logic. Somewhere
there are still references to the originals that I can't find.
