Fixed In Version: binutils-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
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.
