The entry for get/setprogname() in /usr/src/UPDATING could be clearer.
It currently says:
        get/setprogname() added. Any hostprog's that may use this will need
        to be bootstrapped manually until the host system is current.
        Known problems: sys/arch/macppc/stand/fixcoff
                        usr.sbin/config (adding -DMAKE_BOOTSTRAP to
                          CFLAGS and rebuilding should work)
                        usr.sbin/mdsetimage - Build a static copy if
                          building a snapshot before fully bootstrapped.
But how should programs be "bootstrapped manually?" 
Would it be appropriate to suggest that once a current kernel is
installed, libc should be built and installed with the "NOLINT=1"
option, which will then make the calls available to user programs?

Try updating to -current from a pre-mid-February system.
