I had similar problems. Besides having 32-bit binaries always abort,
ktruss failed to identify the process, and print 'ld.elf_so', even
for statically-linked binaries.
Another symptom I had, clearly triggered by attempting to run 32-bit
binaries, was that some symlinks stopped working, especially those
pointing to amd-mounted users' home directories (symlink in /home)
and 32-bit pkg binaries. Even removing /home and attempting to
recreate it produced wierd results: the system created the link, but
it pointed to itself, even though I clearly wrote
'ln -fs /amd/servername/home /home'.
It would be good if, besides NetBSD 32-bit binaries, Linux/i386 emu-
lation would also work. :)
