These should be going to the list for archiving, so I'm forwarding it.

Yes I noticed that, and it is serious, but this is the least of my
worries right now.  The LDPATH search is totally broken on amd64.
ldconfig shows that libstdc++.so and libgcc_s.so are in the search path:

# ldconfig -p | grep libstdc++.so
	libstdc++.so.6 (libc0) =>
	libstdc++.so (libc0) =>

# ldconfig -p | grep libgcc_s.so
	libgcc_s.so.1 (libc0) =>

And yet a test c++ program cannot locate those libraries:

# ldd test
	libstdc++.so.6 => not found
	libgcc_s.so.1 => not found
	libc.so.0 => /lib//libc.so.0 (0x7f6bfb067000)
	ld64-uClibc.so.0 => /lib/ld64-uClibc.so.0 (0x7f6bfb516000)

@Waldemar, the issue is not anything you suggested in your previous
email.  What might you have touched in ld64-uClibc.so or libc.so itself
that would affect the search path?  If its any help, I hit the dlclose()
issue many years ago (and might have been the first to report it, I'm
not sure).  There was some size issue wrt 64 vs 32 that cause an issue
there.  I wonder if in fixing that maybe you broke LDPATH?
