This is not the problem. Even if we can filter out ld-linux.so.2,
it must not work.
/lib/ld-lsb.so.1 is from glibc 2.2.2
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 is from glibc 2.X.Y (2.X.Y > 2.2.2)
Now, which libc.so.6 will you use ?
/lib/lsb/libc.so.6 ? What happens if libreadline is compiled against
glibc 2.X.Y and uses newer versions of functions ?
/lib/libc.so.6 ? This will not work, since /lib/ld-lsb.so.1 is to old for
So, the only solution is to recompile and link libreadline against
glibc 2.2.2/ld-lsb.so.1 in this example -> we need to do this with
every LSB library.

Linux is like a Vorlon. It is incredibly powerful, gives terse,
cryptic answers and has a lot of things going on in the background.
