Yesterday (around 6pm MDT) I did a CVS update and a kernel and distribution 
build.  I rebooted with the new kernel and started a build install.  After 
the base set was installed, every command would core dump.  
Reverting /libexec/ld.elf_so restored a functional system.  I had built the 
distribution using the update option but the previous build was only a few 
days old.  I did another CVS update this morning and I'm currently doing a 
full rebuild of everything (tools, kernel, distribution with no update).  
I'll follow-up with the result.


PS Here's a ktrace of a core-dumping /bin/ls
