  On the other hand -- if it's true that ldconfig is not strictly necessary for
programs to run, it may be sufficient (?) to perform the postinsts without
ldconfig, or with only updating the library links, and then do one big
ldconfig run at the end just to bring everything up-to-date for optimal

  I haven't tested the assertion that programs will run if the cache isn't
updated, though..
