Using brandelf

Can you use brandelf to read the elf type of a binary?  The man page 
shows a usage that might possibly do this, but doesn't bother to say 
what that usage does.

To be honest, I need to do some work with the linux stuff, and the usage 
of /compat/linux and /usr/compat/linux, well, I don't understand, and I 
haven't seen a good enough explanation yet.  Stuff like the 
file to configure linux's ldconfig, it assumes the /compat/linux prefix. 
  Do all the binaries do that?  I mean, the browser files, they use a sh 
scri[t to kick them off, do they use that prefix, or assume stuff?

I need to know this so I can keep going forward on getting flash to work.
