Why do I get this when I use ldconfig:

[root@NetBSD](etc)# /sbin/ldconfig -v
ldconfig: can't open `/emul/aout//etc/'
Totals: entries 0, buckets 0, string size 1

Later on, when I link /etc/ to the above location, things work:

[root@NetBSD](etc)# ln -s /etc/ /emul/aout/etc/
[root@NetBSD](etc)# /sbin//ldconfig -b
Adding /usr/pkg/lib/
Totals: entries 1, buckets 1, string size 44
[root@NetBSD](etc)# exit

Isn't that kind of strange ?  I mean, even the manpages kept saying that
ldconfig checks in /etc/
