I suspect that Linux has higher general shared library overheads then we
do, making prebinding more of a benefit to them.

I haven't had any free time to look at the Prebinding code yet. I take it that
it won't be the default option or at minimal an easy way to opt out of using
it ? From the FreeBSD impalemention I think some of what it is doing, is potentially
untouched area's for hijacking. I'll try to mark some time off tomorrow so I can look
a little further.
