Looking at your PR I see that you meant "upgraded" and not "installed".
The upgrade option needs to handle moving the default system libraries
to /emul/aout, that has not been done yet (I'm looking at it).
What has been done is adding /emul/aout searches to the a.out ld.so we
ship as a backward-compat option. This has also been done to ldconfig.
What hasn't been done, however, is resolve the conflict between the
a.out and ELF ld.so.conf. They are 2 seperate entities that conflict.
The easy solution is to move the a.out ld.so.conf to /emul/aout/etc,
and have ldconfig look there first (for i386 and sparc during upgrade).
I'll change ldconfig to look there, and install it on i386 and sparc.
