 	src/libexec/ld.elf_so: rtld.c
 Log Message:
 Bring across a change from FreeBSD from back in 1998:
 "Fix a bug that showed up when debugging dynamically linked programs.
 References from GDB to "printf" and various other functions would
 find the versions in the dynamic linker itself, rather than the
 versions in the program's libc.  This fix moves the GDB link map
 entry for the dynamic linker to the end of the search list, where
 its symbols will be found only if they are not found anywhere else."
 "printf" isn't true for us, but various libc symbols are, e.g. "malloc".
 Fixes PR 32074 as noted by uwe@
