NetBSD emmi 1.3H NetBSD 1.3H (SHARK) #0: Sat Oct  3 17:35:14 BST 1998     root@temporal:/home/rubycon/src-19981001/src/sys/arch/arm32/compile/SHARK arm32

	binds' programs see two versions of several symbols: one from
	libc, one from the private libbind.a. Apparently this works when
	linking a shared libc, but it fails when linking statically.
	echo LDSTATIC=-static >> /etc/mk.conf; make build
	Workaround: USE_BIND4=1.
	Fix not known.
