You can redirect error messages to some other place using
./ 2>/dev/null
In this case error messages are directed to /dev/null and thus you're not seeing them anymore. I'm assuming that prelink messages are errors, of course.

Other options are piping output for example to grep and grepping those nuisances out with
Code: | grep -v prelink > output.file
