You did the right thing, simply add ldso to your grub.conf file as well
as all shared libraries your binary is linked against. Of course you'll
have to add the binary to Genode's config file. If Genode sees that it
has to load a dynamically linked binary, it will invoke ldso (if
present, otherwise you will get a no dynamic linker error) which in turn
will handle the rest of the process. A test for this can be compiled and
started in your build directory with 'make run/ldso'.

Hope this helps,
