I think I may be responsible for this.  I changed the name of those
arrays from __sys_errlist[] to _sys_errlist[] (likewise for siglist).
I thought it was a safe chage because I thought the indirect reference
that mapped sys_errlist[] to _sys_errlist[] would be resolved at load

If that is the case, it looks like we'll have to bump the shared
library version number once again --- something I had wished to avoid
for a while.  On the other hand, I would have expected lots more bug
reports for this problem.  err() and warn() were changed too.

I don't understand this, though.  Reinstalling the C library from 1.0
should have fixed the problem.
