i hit this myself last night.  i don't know if you've solved this
problem yet, but i thought i remembered something about something
involving libgcc, so i did this:

	# rm /usr/lib/libgcc*
	# cp -p /path/to/a/recent/snapshot/usr/lib/libgcc* /usr/lib

and all was well again.  the snapshot i used was approximately one
month old.
