I believe this patch cause the installation problem:

2000-03-17  Cristian Gafton  <>

       * elf/Makefile ($(rtld-version-installed-name)): Delay
       replacing existing rtld-installed-name.
       ($(rtld-installed-name)): Request libc-$(version) be installed too.
       replace existing rtld-installed-name using $(symbolic-link-prog).

Does anyone remember what bug it tries to fix?
