I think a cleaner solution would be to have the 'ldconfig' package for
powerpc and alpha be built from the ldso source package, the 'ldconfig'
source package seems to be simply the ldconfig sources from ldso, perhaps
with patches (note that the powerpc patch I made to the 'ldconfig' sources
is no longer necessary). It's too late to do this for hamm, but I'd like to
do it for slink. I'm cc'ing ldso@packages.debian.org on this.
