So what? If $distro ships libevent2-1.4.9 for example, there are two choices:
1. you need libevent.so.2-1.4.10: fine, make it a dependency of chromium and let the distro update their libevent2.
2. you need libevent.so.3-1.5.0: fine, make it a dependency of chromium and let the distro add a package libevent3.
sqlite: if upstream is not interested, rename it, and let the distro have a sqlite-google package created (this also requires that you make it use a different SONAME than the pristine sqlite), or, if it's API-compatible, have the distro replace the original sqlite/import your patch.
