That is a sure way of finding out. Another way is with `ldconfig -p'.
Any library which comes up as type ELF (not ELF-libc5 or ELF-libc6)
and has the same soname as its libc5/6 analogue is broken.
For example, my system has the following broken libraries:
libtix.so.4.1, libpaper.so.1, libgmp.so.2, libX11. (Mark already
knows about the problem with xlib6). ldd reports them as statically
