sounds like your libraries and/or is screwed up.

you might try getting new ones, unlinking the old ones (i.e. rm),
and cp'ing the new ones into place.  i had a similar problem,
and this fixed it.

'tar' doesn't unlink before it writes a new file -- it just truncates.
that can cause problems with shlibs...
