System: NetBSD splode.eterna.com.au 1.1_ALPHA NetBSD 1.1_ALPHA (_splode_) #267: Sun Oct 29 23:54:05 EST 1995 email@example.com:/orb/q/build/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/_splode_ sparc
/usr/bin/login is currently a dynamic library on most netbsd platforms.
this gives lots of chances for lossage:
the recent telnetd bug wouldn't have been a problem if login was static.
if you hose your shlibs then you won't be able to get a login when the
system goes multi user -- this has happened to me a couple of times and
i've had to resort to L1-A (sparc) and `boot -s' to recover.
