We removed prelink from all systems some time ago mainly due to its
interference with aide.

I have searched the entire system using 'find /etc -type f | xargs
grep -in skype' and 'find /home -type f | xargs grep -in skype' and
found nothing beyond what was previously reported here.

I have since removed the software via 'yum history rollback'.  And it
will not be returning.

Thanks for the help.
