No, I was just using /usr/obj/bin/ls/ls as an example of what happens
with many binaries built and installed when using NEW_TOOLCHAIN.  The
same thing happens with, for example, with the dynamically linked 'pstat

I have horked up my system several times after a 'make build' installs a
new set of libraries and binaries and 'fsck' crashes at startup, or 'ls
-l' or 'top' no longer work.  And this only seems to occur when I have
built using USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN.
