The LSB compatibility packages for Debian, RedHat and Suse install a 
special symlink which is defined by the LSB as 'ld-lsb-x86-64.so.1' 
instead of 'ld-linux-x86-64.so.2'. The LSB specifies that 
conforming binaries have to use that symlink. Such binaries can be
compiled by passing the switch 


to the gcc compiler.
