No - C RunTime, see:

there is something very wrong if that is missing or unreadable.

If you went ahead and overwrote your install with a bad build then
unwinding from that is going to be... challenging.  If the tools under
/rescue still run then you may be able to salvage things by unpacking
the base set over the top of the existing install (don't do the etc set
because that will overwrite your passwd file).  Once you have restored
base the build should work again.  I would recommend doing a full build,
make sure it is successful and then overwrite your install so everything
is updated.

If /rescue is busted too then you could try booting from the installer
media and drop to a shell, mount the root disk and do the unpack that

If you haven't put much work into the system it may be easier to just do
a clean install but practicing recoveries can be useful :)
