I'm not sure what Felipe needs from libelf, so I can't answer that

I personally will need a list of libraries a binary links against with
they versions and compatibility version; I guess that counts as basic
parsing, but reusing what otool already has still seems easier and
especially is better tested and maintained than writing something on our
own here. That being said, I'm still waiting for reply from Apple legal
on that topic.
