I'm comming a little late into this, but I think this is backwards b/c of 
what David said b/4 that some programs edit ld.so.conf.  We should, 
perhaps, keep ld.so.conf for the old, i.e. /lib/libc5, and a new file 
that uses a strict format so that it can be upgraded easily.  Such as 
including fields that are undefined for future use.

Just my $0.02
