Note: OBJECT_FMT=a.out

	"ldconfig" appears to fail, even though there's actually nothing wrong.
	This especially causes "pkg_delete" to always emit an error.
	root@fiona-> pkg_delete libtool
	pkg_delete: unexec command for `/sbin/ldconfig' failed
	pkg_delete: couldn't entirely delete package (perhaps the packing list is
	incorrectly specified?)
	root@fiona-> ldconfig && echo OK || echo not OK
	not OK
