the instructions for building current contained in the archives have got
a bit muddied over the versions. the last one in current-users.21 is what
I'm assuming most people will use (I did)

If you detect problems linking, it will be during the build of gas. At
that stage, simply remaking/installing crt0.o from src/lib/csu/i386 is
NOT adequate, since you potentially have the wrong ld as well. You can't
even build ld against the new crt0.o because... the new ld demands an
instance of __DYNAMIC and refuses to link the ld.

you have to go back to the NetBSD-0.9 binary ld before you can install
the NEW ld linked against the appropriate crt0.o. Then you can proceed
as per the instructions.
