It leaves a file named /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.220.127.116.11.#prelink#.$blah,
where $blah is a pseudo-random sequence of characters. A new one of
those appears every night. Those files are 0-length. (Also, the
presence of those files freaks out any subsequent runs of ldconfig.)
The /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.18.104.22.168, which I assume is what's confusing
prelink, is from compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118.
This happens on two different systems, each of which was upgraded from
Red Hat 9 to Fedora Core 1. The problem started immediately after the
In the hopes that it was simply stale information somewhere, I tried

I wasn't getting this under FC1, but I was getting the same error
quite consistently under FC2 test3 until installing prelink-0.3.2-1
from the development updates. This update seems to have made the
problem go away, so I guess this bug is somehow related to bug 118522
or bug 121109, which prelink-0.3.2-1's changelog claims to address.
Yeah, please try to reproduce this with FC3t3 (or FC3rc[1-4]) prelink.
If it works there, this bug can be closed (FC1 is EOL).
Expect it is fixed then.
