Heehee. Someone's going to be after my blood ...

In this case it really is just a case of "these are large, and normally only 
loaded the once" but it's a shame because prelinking *does* speed up loading 
of all libraries, especially large ones :)

I'd also recommend (in case anyone really does thinking I'm picking on OO) 
doing the same for e.g. libuninamelist and libgucharmap ... they're big too. 
Just do "find /usr/lib -size +10M" for the worst offenders ;)

Oo. In fact, yes, the eclipse jars are probably another good target ...

Really the only good answer is to do the prelinking on demand, so you always 
know if there's a possible collision between two libraries (if a program 
loads a shared object - at launch, or via dlload - and it collides with 
another (loaded) one, pick a new address space slot and prelink it).

And no, I don't have the gonads to do it myself :o)
