I'm not yet sure if this affects all ports, I noticed on sparc64 and
investigation didn't reveal anything real yet.
I did a cvs update a few hours ago, booted new kernel and build a new libc.
After installing libc, *many* programs start to fail, including: su, getty,
gdb, ktrace and who.
Removing the libc symlink and pointing it to an older version (libc.so.12.75)
made everything happy again.
So, folks, be carefull when upgrading right now; and better keep a root shell
