I believe this should be /libexec/ld.elf_so rather than /lib
as already pointed out in tech-userlevel.
1. We use "libexec" for this purpose. Using "lib" breaks consistency.
2. Although currently ld.elf_so is the only program which belongs to
this directory, that doesn't mean we never have such programs
(other than ld.elf_so) which should go to /libexec in the future.
Please remember that we had /usr/libdata in the days when we don't
have any contents in it yet.
3. Using "/lib/ld.elf_so" doesn't introduce compatiblity with other
systems. Note that Solaris and Linux uses "/lib/ld.so" rather than
