In general yes. There are exceptions related to dlopen or libc listed
earlier in DT_NEEDED tags (check readelf -d ./tonto*), but that seems
unlikely to be your case.
To investigate your situation, have a look at LD_DEBUG functionality
as documented in 'man ld.so'. You can do something like
LD_DEBUG_OUTPUT=/tmp/lddbg.txt LD_DEBUG=all ./tonto...
and then peruse the output, or alternatively interactively in gdb like
gdb --args ./tonto...
(gdb) set env LD_DEBUG=all
(gdb) set env LD_BIND_NOT=1
(gdb) break _gfortran_string_trim
and after that LD_DEBUG stream between the 'run' and 'fin' commands should
show you how the malloc call was bound.
Hope that helps.
