System: NetBSD 5.99.56 NetBSD 5.99.56 (NELLY.MP) #172: Wed

Architecture: sparc64
Machine: sparc64

New binutils breaks sparc64 big time:
 - X can not load any modules
 - PAM can not load any modules and fails wide open (!)
 - probably other unclrear fallout (kern/45415) could be fallout too


Install a -current system on sparc64, try to run X or just "su".

Please either fix it urgently, backout the binutils update or provide a per
arch switch for the binutils version!
