I have installed compat16 from pkgsrc, and it includes a 
which it turns out I need for a binary which was compiled (apparently) 
under a sort-of hybrid NetBSD-1.6 userland but 3.99.x kernel.

The resulting binary depends on but doesn't seem to be 
picking it up from the emulation tree, regardless of whether I symlink 
netbsd16 or netbsd32 into the /emul directory.

Do I really have to copy into my normal tree to get it 
working? :) Or do I have to go bug the builder to use a 1.6 kernel?

(Or is there something else I'm missing?

Thanks in advance,
p.s. Reply to the reply-to please, which is,
