I build a system yesterday from -current (upped from 1.5.1_BETA2) and
my libc appears to be finehere.
-r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 1286630 Jun 21 22:00 libc.a
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 13 Jun 21 22:00 libc.so -> libc.so.12.76
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 13 Jun 21 22:00 libc.so.12 -> libc.so.12.76
You don't mention if your libc was 12.76 or not.
