/usr/lib is in /etc/ld.so.conf.  This is uneccisary, since ldconfig 
searches it by default.  It makes ldconfig -v complain.  Furthermore, it 
seems to slow down ldconfig somewhat.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2000-11-29 06:38:30 EST
/usr/lib is inserted into ld.so.conf by some packages in their %post scripts
(because if those packages are relocated somewhere else, they need to register
their library paths with ldconfig). Those scripts could test if the library
path is different than /lib and /usr/lib, but as it is harmless, I don't think
they need to be changed.
