mmm ... a real problem in recent mu scripts: the mu script try to update
the libc cache /etc/, so it run its own "ldconfig", located in
tree/usr/local/bin/lconfig (in 11x: tree/usr/srv/bin/ldconfig)
Obviously, the command ldconfig exists only if you unpacked the EXT
addon ( mu -u, with an EXT.tgz present ).

Why do not call the "ldconfig" installed in the user's system?
Because I can be sure if recent ldconfig in recent distros create
a cache suitable for mu. So, I run the mulinux libc5 ldconfig.

Anycase, this step is useful only for me, when release a new
floppy. You can substitute the function update_the_cache() in mu with
an empty function.

This is the best fix:

if [ -f $TREE/usr/srv/bin/ldconfig ]; then
        msg "Updating /etc/ ..."
        chroot $TREE /usr/srv/bin/ldconfig

Thank you for this report!
