I don't know what the actual problem is, but I fixed this kind of ldd
filtering problem for mkinitrd during the final stage of sarge
development. Does this help you?
* GOTO Masanori
- Make mkinitrd work with new ldd format which change is introduced
in glibc 2.3.4. (Closes: #301455, #303281)
This change also fixes amd64 mkinitrd breakage.
(Closes: #279382, #292080, #295412, #295422, #297724)
