Cause: The linker will overwrite a valid SONAME with an empty string in a DT_NEEDED record.
Consequence: Certain programs will link, but not execute because symbols from some libraries will not be loaded.
Fix: The linker correctly handles empty strings in SONAMES.
Result: Programs execute as expected.
Verified for build binutils-184.108.40.206.2-5.42.el6.
