I think a chroot-environment with carefully picked libraries and tools could 
solve your problem without any need to reboot. However, this requires a big 
amount of disk space and a lot of work to get the required tools installed in 
that environment because it forces you to rebuild a big part of the 
user-space runtime. 

Gentoo requires similar steps when installed from a stage1 boot disk. So I'm 
pretty confident that this method works, but I cannot tell for sure. Try at 
your own risk :-)
