Great.  Are you worrying about older versions of ld-linux not being
able to parse /etc/ld.so.conf anymore?  Otherwise the format could be
as simple as:

/lib/libc5	1
/usr/lib/libc5	1
/usr/X11R6/lib/libc5	1

I don't think anything more complicated than an integer to check
against the major version number of ld-linux is needed.

In case it wasn't obvious, the standard library locations, /lib,
/usr/lib, /usr/X11R6/lib, etc., would never have a version number.
Only the special locations would.  All the 1's above would become 2's
if we ever need to move to libc7.
