See lines 556-571 of lib/libalpm/util.c.  Thats where it comes from (I
think.  I profess not to be able to read/understand source code.  I
can run a pretty mean grep -nR "sbin/ldconfig" * on the pacman source
tree though.

Tell us, what files do you have under /etc/ld.so.conf.d/* and what are
their contents?

Also, do you run a multi-lib system (mixed i686 and x86_64 libs?)
