prelink fail over grass-libs

Description of problem:
Dear Cristian !
I've just noticed that on the fc9 systems I'm looking after, the current
grass-libs package interferes with correct operation of prelink -
resulting in a creeping performance degradation after a while...
/usr/sbin/prelink -av -mR -f
/usr/sbin/prelink: /usr/lib/libgrass_gproj.so.6.3.0 has a dependency cycle
Laying out 1081 libraries in virtual address space 00101000-50000000
Random base 0x011c6000
/usr/sbin/prelink: Could not find virtual address slot for
Prelink failed with return value 1
grass itself seems to be running ok and I did not have the time yet to
investigate the root cause of the problem - the cyclic dependency in
libgrass_gproj seems to be through gdal, while the missing slot for
libgrass_sim seems to be the real show-stopper for prelink.
As a quick-fix (ie. to have prelink work again while investigating the
grass problem, I would recommend to blacklist the two suspect libraries
for prelink, e.g. by creating /etc/prelink.conf.d/grass.conf with the
and adding it to the package.
Hope that makes sense ... cheers,
Dont know if its prelink fault, or grass-lib missbehave,
but if Jakub have the time to look over would be great,
otherwise i'll accept to fix by blacklist as Wolfgang
Jakub, would you comment a bit ?
- solved in devel.
Investigate why koji fail for build-f9.
