doko, please correct me, but according to the manpage of ld.so, neither
/lib nor /usr/lib belong into /etc/ld.so.conf:

       The  necessary  shared libraries needed by the program are
       searched for in the following order
       o      Using  the  environment  variable   LD_LIBRARY_PATH
              (LD_AOUT_LIBRARY_PATH  for a.out programs).  Except
              if the executable is  a  setuid/setgid  binary,  in
              which case it is ignored.
       o      From the cache file /etc/ld.so.cache which contains
              a compiled list of candidate  libraries  previously
              found in the augmented library path.
       o      In the default path /usr/lib, and then /lib.

Indeed, on all machines I checked, /lib was not in /etc/ld.so.conf (nor
was /usr/lib on most machines).

So the real cause for your trouble, Luke, appearently is the presence of
that libgcc1_so file in /usr/lib. AFAICS, adding that /lib line to
ld.so.conf is just a hack to resolve that broken situation on your

Luke, could you run "dpkg -S libgcc |grep so" and send the results ?
Does this list your /usr/lib/libgcc1_s.so.1 file ?
