Spatialite version conflict

We now have on the LiveDVD two versions of libspatialite, both libspatialite3 and libspatialite5. The second is brought in by PostGIS, and causes spatialite_gui to use the version 4.1 of the library instead of the version 3.1 we had up till recently. This is bad news.
The botton line in that any DB created in spatialite is unreadable by QGIS !
I know we're "5 minutes" before the final build, but this problem will really reflect badly on QGIS, SpatiaLite and the LiveDVD.
Two thoughts for a solution:
I wonder if the install_spatialite.sh were run in the build process before PostGIS gets installed, then it would compile spatialite_gui using the libspatialite3 libraries.
Alternatively, we could put into the ./configure script for spatialite_gui an explicit path to the libspatialite3 *.so rather than depending on pkg_config. ??
Any additional thoughts welcome.
