Yes, $ORIGIN is supposed to work, although you will need to use the latest
development sources in order to get full support for this feature.

I do not get an assertion failure. The linker appears to work OK. (This is
using the binutils 2.26 release and/or the current development sources).

This command generates a seg-fault. (In _dl_check_map_versions in the loader).
I do not have enough knowledge to know what this seg-fault means however.
