this program is used to dynamically load and link librairies.
do a cat /proc/pid/maps (where pid is a pid of a process present on the
system), and you'll see that every process has the code of ld-linux
mapped into its address space.

unnecessay...

It is basically the program "interpreter" in ELF terminology. The
interpreter is loaded before the program is loaded. ld-linux.so.2 does all
of the dynamic linking of objects. Linux programs list ld-linux.so.2 as
their "interpreter".

1. compiling programs to use ld-linux.so.1 instead of ld-linux.so.2

Is it possible at all and if is, how is it? I would like
to compile LYNX to use ld-linux.so.1 because ld-linux.so.2
is too big.
It should also use libc.so.5 instead of libc.so.6

Thanks
