I owe you all an apology! I didn't work because I didn't have proper
version of ELF libc installed (libc and ldd out of sync). The /proc 
problem is also bogus, it just hadn't been mounted. Arf! 
(I recently got a new machine, and while I had procfs in my fstab, 
I'd forgotten a mkdir /proc. I need to get some more sleep...). 
Sorry and thanks. This is good news and will help phasing out 
any non-NetBSD OSes around here ;-)...
