Just get the sources of ldso, compile them and then install the package.
This works fine and saved me. However apt keeps on insisting unpacking the
broken package over the good self compiled one.
This means that you will need to reinstall your selfcompiled package everytime
you use it upgrade packages until there is a newer one that is compiled for
the proper instruction set.
