Could you change the script to something like this?  Is it necessary to
run dirname under the old kernel version?  Seems the output should be
the same over versions of the library.

 DIR_NAME = `dirname $0` 

 export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1
 
 case $0 in
          */*)    exec $DIR_NAME/maple -x $*
 	;;
          *)      exec maple -x $*
 	;;
 esac

In fact, I'm not sure why you have the case statement, since dirname
returns a . if there is no directory path.

Should just be able to do

 DIR_NAME=`dirname $0` 

 export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1
 
 exec $DIR_NAME/maple -x $*
 
Is this way off the wall?  Seems like it should work.
