It appears that the ld.so doesn't really work in the snapshot. In
particular, it fails to obey LD_LIBRARY_PATH for specifying the
locations of shared libraries. It also fails to load any executable
with more than 4 shared libraries.
ldd has the same problem with > 4 shared libraries, but it obeys a
non-relative LD_LIBRARY_PATH. IMHO things should obey a relative
LD_LIBRARY_PATH as well, though.
Any chance on getting the ld.elf_so to work on the pmax and to fix
whatever bug results in the 4 libraries or less problem?
