You can do this, but as far as I know it will only work on ELF
systems.  Also, it probably means putting BFD or libelf into MC.  I
don't know whether this will be acceptable.

I don't think this is that sick, though.  When I first heard of it I
thought it was rather clever.

Even if we do this we'll need another mechanism anyway.  This will
only work for exectuables, but we'll need icons for all kinds of
files.  Also, we'll want a mechanism that will work on non-ELF
