Hmm, also very interesting.

Seems like a nice feature to add to LTSP-4.0.  In fact, the ldconfig
binary is already in place on LTSP 4.0, so it would be easy
to add that to the rc.local script.  Which brings up another
small point.  In 4.0, the script will be called rc.sysinit instead
of rc.local.  I don't know what I was thinking back in those
early days.  the rc.local file should really be for local changes
that a sysadmin makes.  the rc.sysinit should never need to
be touched.
