The problem is that this changes the format of ld.so.conf.  The
current format is very liberal -- comments start with '#' and run to
end of line with everything else being directory names separated by
whitespace, ':' or ','.  Anything which reads ld.so.conf would have to
be modified accordingly.  Ld read ld.so.conf at one time and there may
be others that I don't know about.
