Well, from what I made of your prior description, you installed 1.5.1_BETA2
over your prior system. Then you followed the prescribed upgrade to -current
path. Since your unpacking of base.tgz will have linked libc.so and
libc.so.12 to the 1.5.1 based libc.so.62.1 shared library, at what point
did you redo those links back to the -current libc.so.12.76 version?
The "problem" point for me, every time, is following the install and
link adjustment that occurs when the newly built libc.so is installed.
Installing the lint.ln files that correspond/follow the new libc only
uses commands that need libc.so and those go boom.
I'm not saying libc.so is broken, but rather there is something in its
new form that is interacting badly with the kernel and the shared lib
