Here's a quick summary on how to use prebind:
Before you do anything with prebind, you MUST install new ld.elf_so
first. However, modifications made into the original ld.elf_so are
very small and shouldn't affect loading of unmodified shared objects.
'prebind' takes a number of options, most noticibly '-f':
$ prebind -f libc.so.12.88 (isn't that quite simple? ;-)
Optional -v switch increases verbosity level. If you want the maximum
level, try -vv. However, don't ever use -b option; it has some problems
Finally, don't forget to make a backup copy of a shared object you
apply to 'prebind'; it overwrites input files without asking to you!
