A clever status check in the launcher would solve the whole problem neatly.

If the above library exists, test system lib for version string.
  If version string > than packaged library, rm packaged library.
  Else
     Continue
  end if
Else Continue
end if

That covers all possible cases (Barring strange ones where the host does not use libc, and so there is no native libc at all-- such as say an android tablet or something.)

Something tells me Toady would lose his mind over something like GoCD with vagrant, docker et all.

Push to VCS, and the containers spin up, build, push the resulting build archives up to whever they need to be, and tear themselves down. No need for specific hardware. You can do all this local, too - no need for cloud stuff if you're paranoid about where your code goes.

This issue does give me concern, though. I really, really do hope you've got proper backups sorted out. It would seriously suck if a fire or other such physical shenanigan wiped out DF!  :-X I mean, even an occasional backup tape sent to Iron Mountain. Something.
