Hmmmm...that's odd because none of the patches that I've found in the RH
source RPMs seem to fix the problem -- that ldconfig doesn't know anything
about 64-bit BFDs. ldconfig is bound to be used by alot of postinstall
scripts, but whether it works properly or not is the question (I'm left
wondering if they're hacking it specifically for Alpha or if they are
providing general BFD support for all archs, as should be provided by
ldconfig -- I haven't found a patch to do either in RedHat's source
