well... you could replace ldconfig with /bin/true, install all libs and then
restore the ldconfg and run it. It is not slow for a lot of libs, but it is
low for running it after each lib instead of at the end of the install.
Generally there are a few programs which should be run only at the end of a
long install run. Updating manpages, debian document index, menu and so on.
But for ldconfig it is not as easy as spawning a child chich waits for the
end of the setup, since a lib could actually be pre-depended by another
package and so it needs to be configured.
