Probably an oversight because NetBSD's "better" a.out format wasn't
considered when this went into bsdLib.tmpl.

ldd on a.out doesn't understand shared objects (ELF loads shared objects
very differently from a.out, so ldd just doesn't have the necessary
support). You have to ldd a resultant executable.
