This is a clue.   But perhaps you didn't delete the objdir for the
tools.  After cvs up -A, removal and re-checkout should not change.


  cvs up -I \!

and save it.  There should be no output, but you might have built files
in the tree.

Also from top level

  cvs diff -r HEAD -I \!

and again output should be empty.

See src/libexec/ld.elf_so and read the Makefile.  I just removed
ld.elf_so from my destdir and re-ran make install (via using the
arch-specific nbmake in the tooldir) and it worked fine to recreate the

Check that directory specificially in your checkout for not having
