hello,

when I do, just this morning, a "zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change
--no-recommends" I get nearly 100 times the following additional output.
This is only the last line of several other Packages.

(404/424) Installieren: pim-sieve-editor-17.08.1-1.1.x86_64
........................................................................................[fertig]
Zusätzliche rpm-Ausgabe:
/sbin/ldconfig: /usr/lib64/libncurses.so is not an ELF file - it has the
wrong magic bytes at the start.

# file /usr/lib64/libncurses.so
/usr/lib64/libncurses.so: ASCII text

This is from SLES 12 SP2, but it is always my first thing to do when I
get those messages from ldconfig.

Hmmm ... I've installed ncurses-devel

rpm -qf /usr/lib64/libncurses.so
ncurses-devel-5.9-55.6.1.x86_64

and doing

ldconfig

shows no message ... what does the spec file of pim-sieve-editor do here?
Linker scripts are valid solutions and very handy.
