I have been getting an email alert for an intermittently failing cronjob (/etc/cron.daily) for a few weeks now. The full email contents follow:
Subject: Anacron job 'cron.daily' on pbx

/etc/cron.daily/prelink:

/etc/cron.daily/prelink: line 47: 118001 Aborted /usr/sbin/prelink -av $PRELINK_OPTS >> /var/log/prelink/prelink.log 2>&1

The more recent entries in /var/log/prelink/prelink.log are:
/usr/sbin/prelink: Could not prelink /usr/bin/nss-policy-check because its dependency /usr/lib64/libsoftokn3.so could not be prelinked

/usr/sbin/prelink: Could not prelink /usr/lib64/nss/unsupported-tools/ocspclnt because its dependency /usr/lib64/libsoftokn3.so could not be prelinked
Prelink failed with return value 134

I found other linux users (non-Thirdlane systems) experiencing the same error with different libraries and they were able to silence the error by blacklisting specific folders in /etc/prelink.conf. Is there a better way address this or should it be blacklisted and ignored?
