Ouch! The files you mention are in /bin, and everthing is /sbin /bin
is compiled static. The old ls should still be in /bin/ls.
You can't even run "make" or "gcc" without libc, though. You'll need
to get libc.so.* off of another machine. "make" &c will complain if
it's an older version than the one they were linked against, but you
still may be able to "make && make install" in /usr/src/lib/libc.
As to what went wrong... don't know. If you add "BUILD= yes" to your
/etc/mk.conf, make will never try to install a target that doesn't
exist. You don't normally *need* that to do a make build, but it might
help you figure out what goes wrong without trashing your system again.
