I reported this on linux-gcc-dev last month and saw zero response. I
was unable to use an application which required libz.so.1.0.4. I can't
recall the specifics, but it was a similar problem to the one you relate
above; ldconfig just refused to create a workable association in the
library cache. The only workaround was to back off my version of
ldconfig to the one from the 1.7.x binutils. Just about drove me nuts
diagnosing it..
