Who cares? What Debian systems spend a noticable amount of time
waiting for ld to search for libraries? I've never seen ld be anything
less than instantaneous to find libraries, even on old boxes with just
about everything installed. It spends all its time linking, not
waiting for open() to complete.

Arguing about the theoretical performance is a bloody waste of time in
the absence of an actual problem. As I said, we do not have that bug.
