Are you on a m68k platform? Some of the string functions were updated
a couple of days ago for m68k bases ports. After installing libc with
these changes, "everything" stopped working, and I had to remove Luckily I had a previous version left over in /usr/lib.

With todays SUP, I have rebuilt libc again, and now it is usable again.

I have seen this on NetBSD/mac68k, but any m68k bases port should be
equally affected.
