comment Locate owner of a computer on file system
Try the .history file in the users home directory. It may contain a call like ssh mlastname@lab.university.edu that you may be able to map to an email address.

It doesn't need to be agnostic (but $PATH is, and Mark mentioned another one). He only has one (unfortunately he didn't both to include which). But the way you propsed will likely be destroyed on the next update.

Don't do such hacks. use $PATH and your distributions mechanisms.

@mat if it were packaged, he could say apt-get build-deps oprofile. Gentoo isn't the first to specify dependencies, they only decided to reinvent the wheel again... and I doubt any distribution can fully automatically infer dependencies from an unseen configure script.
