The last time prelinking came up on the Gentoo lists, those who had done
some benchmarking reported that it gave no significant benefit on amd64.

I presume that also would be the case for binary dists.

To do that the prelinking has to be done when the binaries are installed,
before the checksums are calculated.  Ie, the package manager has to do it.
