Looking at this again...

xfullpath isn't really that expensive. We could even do it only for
ld.so.1; I think that's not totally unreasonable.
Are you sure the files are distinct on your Solaris 2.8 / 2.9? I have
a symlink /lib -> ./usr/lib on 2.8, and a symlink /usr/lib/ld.so.1 ->
../../lib/ld.so.1 on 2.10.
