the former makes sense.  i'd never seen the latter happen, but...

It boils down the the fact that your crt0.o was probably never
completely remade (because it doesn't deal with dependencies right),
and so binaries that used its idea of some syscalls (i.e. dynamically
linked binaries) had the wrong idea of what to do, and croaked.

that's the cause of the problem...
