This isn't elrepo's fault.

The glibc update changes the location of the ldconfig binary. It's still
in root's path, but anything that had a hardcoded path as a requirement
will break.

The original glibc package provides both /usr/sbin/ldconfig and
/sbin/ldconfig, while the updated package only provides /sbin/ldconfig.

It means there's no more /usr/sbin/ldconfig provided in the newer packages.
