These type of errors wrt relocation errors seem to be fairly common with
KDE. However, I have never seen them on my own box. Perhaps you need to
disable prelink completely for the error to go away? Even with the new
libxrender1 I can still run KDE fine and get no error messages related
to relocations in .xsession-errors
