this is a pb thing i don't think that it is configurable by us that way w/o
their assitance, but will look into it.

anyway, looking at the strace and LD_DEBUG output i think you can do this
(at least on .elf systems) by playing LD_LIBRARY_PATH games. 

completely untested

	- copy the pb directories to your overlay directory
	- symlink the mod directory to your overlay directory
	- prepend the overlay directory to your LD_LLIBRARY_PATH
	- cd to your overlay path directory
	- run the exe relative to your cwd
