hadn't noticed this either. If you execute ld, it gives a
help screen, telling you that it will (among other things)
launch executables. eg
igloo:/lib# ./ld-2.3.5.so /usr/bin/ls libc.so.*
(apparently maintainers need to do this.)
on my slackware system, most of the libraries are 755, but
they segv on execution.
