This is true, but it's use not recommended.  The reason is that all
a.out libraries were almost certainly built with libc4 and all ELF
libraries were built with libc5 and libraries built with different
libc's should generally not be mixed.  Personally, I question why
H.J. even spent his time on making it possible.
