Bug#120705: ITP: prelink -- ELF prelinking utility to speedup dynamic linking
FYI, I have a package for this, but it's NOT ready for public consumption
yet (the prelink utility, not the package). I was intending on ITP'ing it
since it goes hand-in-hand with the binutils support that I've enabled
recently, but if you really want to package it, be my guest.
I have to ask, though, how you're going to handle the invocation of
prelink, especially since it's worthless when new versions of libraries
and/or binaries are installed. To really get this working ideally, it
should be called during packaging and possibly even during boot or via a
weekly cron job, but I hadn't worked out the wrinkles totally yet.
Let me know...perhaps we can co-maintain this since I really don't need
another package to manage, but since it's vital for whomever does to know
what's going on with binutils at any given time...
