It's a linker problem.  I compiled the standalone-tcsh package in
the usual way, but removed the resulting binary, and performed
just the final link command with a linker (and corresponding
libbfd.so.9 shared object) from a 5.1_RC?-something system.  The
resulting statically linked binary runs just fine.

So, something has changed in -current with regards to the linker
or the BFD library -- something that breaks static linking on the
NetBSD/alpha platform.  Does this ring any bells?
