No there shouldn't be any.

Yes, it should be possible

Or you can just use the ld.elf_so from the 1.6.2 distribution.

But I'm not sure this is fixed in 1.6.2. I had to use a current ld.elf_so
on my alpha to get rid of this. The current ld.elf_so is fine on my 1.6.2
alpha, but I don't know how it would be on i386.
