Since we were given the local copy of the binary already, we can just match it up and not worry about search paths. Any files that we weren't given binaries for, we expect them to be in the sys root of the platform (where all the /usr/lib binaries are cached, etc). So we expect any binaries that were locally built to be supplied to us (which can be done in the test suite for example) and all others to be in the SDK and the platform plug-in will locate them.

No, it our UUID values are a MD5 checksum of carefully selected parts of the binary. We skip around the parts that have debug info or source file paths in it. So the text and data sections, parts of the symbol table that aren't debug or source related and a few more parts.
