You may also need the following in /emul/aout/etc/ (at least, 
that is what my cats box has):


Also, you should still be able to use ldd on the executable.  For example, 
one a.out legacy binary I have reports:

$ ldd gdb
        -ltermlib.0 => /emul/aout//usr/lib/ (0x2018f000)
        -lm.0 => /emul/aout//usr/lib/ (0x20192000)
        -lc.12 => /emul/aout//usr/lib/ (0x201b7000)
