hmm, this is a ss20 (ross) and a ss5.  in fact, i've never been able
to build a functional ld.elf_so since i started following current

i dont think i'm missing any recommended steps.  roughly,
	<new kernel & reboot>
	<consult UPDATING>
	make obj
	make build or release

i'm at a loss as to why it fails.  am i correct that it's purpose is
to load and relocate the dynamic libs?
