/usr/bin/sln is owned by glibc 2.18-1

       The  sln  program creates symbolic links.  Unlike the ln(1) program, it
       is statically linked.  This means that if for some reason  the  dynamic
       linker  is  not  working,  sln  can  be  used to make symbolic links to
       dynamic libraries.
