After installin a new "ld.elf_so" on my SPARCStation LX all dynamically
linked binaries start crashing with a segmentation fault. Here is the
output of "ktrace":

# ktrace /usr/X11R6/bin/resize
zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped)  ktrace /usr/X11R6/bin/resize
# kdump
    39 ktrace   EMUL  "netbsd"

cd src/libexec/ld.elf_so
make dependall
cp -p /usr/libexec/ld.elf_so /usr/libexec/
make install (*)
cp -p /usr/libexec/ /usr/libexec/ld.elf_so

(*) You'll see this at this point:
