After Johnny's recent rework of emulation support in pkgsrc, I wanted
to try out skype (Linux-i386 binary) on NetBSD-4.99.25/amd64 (with the
compat options enabled).

Installation works fine, but when I start it, I get:
./skype: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/ cannot make segment writable for relocation: Permission denied

What's the proper way to handle this?
