#5969: Infinite loop in library_status

 When running library_status from the wrong folder, it go into infinite
 loop. The following code seems to be responsible (in library_status.cpp,
 function find_lib_name):

         for(count = 0;; ++count){
             if(*--e_itr == "libs")
                 throw std::string("must be run from within a library

 Why testing lib_test_dir.empty()? Testing e_itr would not work either
 since operator-- loops when it gets to the start...
