Subject: libc6: problem with /usr/X11R6/lib/i486-linuxaout and LD_LIBRARY_PATH

joey@kite:~>LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/X11R6/lib/i486-linuxaout ldd /usr/X11R6/bin/xload
/usr/X11R6/bin/xload: error in loading shared libraries
libXaw.so.6: invalid ELF header
The only files in /usr/X11R6/lib/i486-linuxaout are a.out libraries. xload
is libc6 of course. So it should not be linked to the a.out libraries; they
should be ignored. I spoke to David Engel about this, and he agrees about
this and says it's a bug in the dymanic linker for libc6, and that the
dynamic linker for libc5 already handes this.
This problem is making xaw-wrappers not work on certian systems, btw.
