rawhide hosed after latest update: everything segfaults

Last night I updated a rawhide x86_64 system that I'd installed
just a week ago.  The previous update was two or three days ago,
and went fine.  This one however, did not go well.

And now, from the same root shell (zsh) that ran the yum -y upgrade
command, whenever I try to run any non-builtin command with shared
libraries, it segfaults:

    $ /bin/true
    zsh: segmentation fault  /bin/true
    $ ldd /bin/false
    zsh: segmentation fault  ldd /bin/false

Statically-linked ones like "mount" do work:

    $ mount > /dev/null && echo ok

>From the names of the packages involved in the
latest update, only "prelink" seems like it could
cause such fundamental trouble.

Digging a little showed I'm not alone:


Jakub Jelinek's comments suggesting how to recover worked for me:
