Don't know whether or not this would help, but have you done ldconfig ? and 
put /usr/lib in ld.so.conf ? Anyway in C programming whenever you can't find 
entry symbo __start, meaning that there is no main function in the program, 
so I suspect you have a corrupted kernel. You could try downloading the 
kernel from other site and do a checksum to make sure it's all OK :)
