This bit's actually fine: the error's ignored, and one or the other will
work. The real problem seems to be the ldd segfault, which is a binutils
problem. There's rumours that the binutils thing might be fixed upstream
now, so maybe that's worth a shot. Otherwise, talk to Ryan Murray (who
may know something), or Ben Collins (who fixed a similar problem on sparc).
