Speeding up (caching?) shared libraries loading

Suppose I have an executable which I need to invoke repeatedly (e.g. to 
run tests in a makefile).
This executables spend most of its time loading (rather than 
processing), due to the need of several huge shared libraries.

I'd welcome an hint on how to speed this up.
Possible thing would be to "cache" these shared libraries (and possibily 
the executable too) in memory, so that any invocation after the first is 
Is this possible at all?
Any other idea?

  bye & Thanks
