Hi zerokeeper,

  Thanks for reporting this problem.  Unfortunately it is not worth
  fixing.  The leaked memory only happens when readelf is displaying
  data on a corrupt binary - regular binaries will not cause readelf
  to leak memory.  Since  the memory is returned to the system when
  readelf exits, and readelf always does exit, there is no need to
  add in extra code just to handle this corner case.
