Is prelink still required?


I noticed that KDE is now linked with DT_GNU_HASH optimizations.

rrs@learner:~$ readelf -a /usr/bin/kmail| grep HASH
  [ 3] .hash             HASH            08048148 000148 00028c 04   A  5  
0  4
  [ 4] .gnu.hash         GNU_HASH        080483d4 0003d4 0001d8 04   A  5  
0  4
 0x00000004 (HASH)                       0x8048148
 0x6ffffef5 (GNU_HASH)                   0x80483d4

But I also noticed that many other applications (non-KDE) aren't linked with
this option.

Are any of you using prelink currently ?
If yes, what have your experiences been overall (in the past and now in
present) with prelinking libraries ?
