(I understand *why*)  ;-)

It is very nice to know that those binaries are dynamically linked
(and stripped).  I read a lot about the efforts of the NetBSD
development team to get even binaries in the root filesystem
dynamically linked.  I was not sure about those binaries in /usr/bin
and /usr/X11R6/bin.

IMHO, that is a nice change too.  I am awaiting for those changes
to be implemented in production releases of NetBSD.
