This is because the argument(s) to ldd are actually exec(2)'ed with
some magic set in the environment to produce the shared library maps
in stead of going to the prog's `main()' routine (see rtld.c for the
gory details).

This particular core-dumping no longer occurs in NetBSD-current, btw
(unlike SunOS-current, one might say...).
