Quentin fixed some compat_netbsd32 issues, but the particular one you're 
talking about here was fixed by me in a different commit: having an 
emulation-specific hook for preferred VM mapping addresses, which makes 
the dynamic loader get mapped at the right address again.

I've been asked for a pullup of this into netbsd-3 before.. I should 
just get off my ass and do that.
