Thanks for noticing. However, we don't really want to get
into distributing all shared libraries (and their own
requirements... etc). We'll consider bundling a required lib if it
meets one of these criteria:
* A major or reasonably popular distro doesn't install it by default
* Binary compatibility has proven to be a problem in falling back to
the distro version (freetype, libjpeg, etc).
What distro are you running SL on which doesn't have a libidn.so.11
