I have both kinds - misconfigured and missing labels... but in 
permissive mode this should not cause failures.

I'm not sure a crystal ball is required - I was just looking for some

I could figure that out myself, but I thought it'd be simpler to ask...

Running /sbin/ldconfig seems to work fine, with exit code of 0
