just run: 
$ sudo apt-get install prelink 
$ sudo nice -15 prelink -Rmva

And wait for it finish the work... It takes some time and it will spit a
lot of output (and some errors, don't worry!). the nice command makes it
run with very low priority, so you can continue to use your system
normally whitout notice that prelink is working :)
