regarding close source libraries, there are plenty of cases where there are bugs in Amiga libraries that cannot be fixed without hacking or reverse engineering. There was an issue I had with LHA once that I wanted to look into, and despite the source being in the hands of a few, I was unable to get hold of a copy.

as wXR said too, you can have issues with binary incompatibility too - I've had that on linux where one developer decided to only distribute binaries. suffice to say, that code no longer works.
