Does prelink follow symlinks, if not you can install the cinelerra binary
in a path not searched by prelink and then symlink to it from /usr/bin
thus avoiding the problem.

Fixing the underlying problem (probably something with options to
assembler, compiler or linker) is the long term solution. New options have
been introduced to parts of the compiler chain to support prelinking.
