ldconfig is doing the right thing I think -- the bug is in

syndicate scott% objdump -p /usr/lib/libtermcap.so | grep SONAME
  SONAME      libncurses.so.5

The DT_SONAME field of that shared library (provided by the
libncurses5-dev package) is wrong.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
