Summary: The configuration and cronjob for system-wide ELF prelinking
Description: 
Caution: if this package is installed, it will modify your system (by cron)!

prelink is a utility which modifies ELF shared libraries and
executables, so that far less relocations need to be resolved at runtime
and thus programs come up faster.

This package contains the configuration to apply prelink to the whole
system and a cronjob to do this daily.
