it is opening ans stating all those lib files and extracting the version
from the header. It is quite fast on the second run, so it is the file
system access which is painfully slow. You can actually run ldconfig with -N
and -X to only update the links and only update the cache.

The problem is not t he execution speed of that tool but the frequency it is
run at install time (for each package).
