Sounds like the hints file is missing or damaged. These live here: 
/var/run/ for a.out and /var/run/ for elf format. 
Look and see if these are present, and possibly consider deleting them and 
regenerating due to the possibility they are damaged. As root the command 
ldconfig -aout will do the first (probably not needed as that format is 
deprecated) and ldconfig -elf will do the second.
