I think this is correct. I thought about it and on the one hand ld.so.conf is 
aconfig file; but it's not one that is edited by the user but by several 
packages on install.

So its fine to update it during the upgrade. Maybe in future versions if all 
other packages use the include dir we can remove that file from the backup 

I went ahead and put filesystem-2010.02-2 into testing.

Please sign off.
