I _think_ it's only gdb not finding that library, because gdb isn't aware
of the ->/emul/linux mapping.
But there's a way do find this out:
Add 'ktrace -t cenis' at the second last line in soffice (the else
branch in the shell script you start) after the exec, so the line should
exec ktrace -t cenis "$sd_prog/$sd ...
and start soffice as normal. Then I'd suggest a coffee break.
When the program has finally coredumped, look for a file ktrace.out and do
a 'kdump | less' in that directory (Amend this line as necessary. It might
be useful to write the output into a file, kdump isn't too speedy either.)
Search for the first occurrence of libpthread. You should see an 'open'
system call and it will probably return with -1 and "No such file or
directory". The next lines it will test various pathes. It should finally
succeed and it should use the one in /emul/linux/lib.
If it does find the right libraries, you can at least be sure that this is
not the problem.
When you are looking at the trace anyway, you could look for a string
"SIGSEGV" and see what it did shortly before. Mostly however I found this
not too helpful to find a bug, but you never know.
