   IMHO, the compiler should be fixed to include the proper .note section
   on NetBSD hosts.

every compiler?  what about programs that use their own startup routines
that are written completely in assembler?  why shouldn't we run unlabelled
programs?  i'm yet to see a good reason why.  the default should be to run
these programs, and the option should be to disable it.

this problem has bitten me as well.
