I've a huge number of shapefiles and I would like to create a VRT as I do with gdalbuilvrt for raster. I find here https://github.com/dwtkns/gdal-cheat-sheet that it should be possible and the format of VRT for OGR vector files exists and is described here : http://www.gdal.org/drv_vrt.html.

Where can I find documentation or a utility program to do that?

    From your second link: The virtual files are currently normally prepared by hand.. ogr2ogr is not yet able to do it.

  • Perhaps worth making a feature request into trac.osgeo.org/gdal
