/sbin/ldconfig is a static ELF binary, so it does not need libc5.
To run it, your kernel needs to support ELF binaries.

If you have stock 0.93R6, you should 'insmod' the 'binfmt_elf' module
(it's somewhere under /lib/modules) for now.

You should build a kernel that has ELF support in (not as a module)
ASAP though, because only then you can use ELF base packages.

Hope this helps,
