Can ldconfig just be an empty script? Or does it need to make plain
.so symlinks to all the .so.X.Y.Z files so that ld can find them? I'm
not clear on whether most packages (e.g. libtool based) do the symlink
themselves or expect ldconfig to do so. It doesn't affect runtime
usage but it does affect linking programs against the library.

If we can figure out all this stuff, it would be great if someone
could make a clean git repo of replacements for all of the glibc
binaries that one could use with musl. Do you (or anyone else) have a
list of programs we'd need to make dists happy?
