These are unittests, so they only get executed once or twice per
linkage. Prelinking is slower than just letting the dynamic linker
take care of things. This may be a unique use case, so maybe prelink
is good enough for everyone else. Even so, it'd be nice if you didn't
have to use prelink.
I'm going to try to fix this for us somehow and release a patch,
whether it goes into the official glibc or not. Perhaps my efforts
would be better directed towards speeding up prelink. I haven't
actually looked at the implementation yet.
