Sounds not like 1.4.1. Snapshots are -current.

ld.so should be installed in /usr/libexec/ld.so on 1.4.1 systems.
NetBSD/i386-current doesn't have (need) an ld.so anymore

Again, ldconfig doesn't exist on ELF systems.
It's possible to execute old (a.out/NetBSD 1.4.1 and before) binaries on new
(ELF, NetBSD-current since I-don't-know and future NetBSD versions (>=1.5) )
systems with a.out emulation, but I doubt this is what you really want.
See http://www.netbsd.org/Releases/current.html to read more about
"current" and http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/elf.html for some
information about a.out vs. ELF.
Again my advise: Get the last "Formal Release", i.e. NetBSD 1.4.1.
Dies ist Thilos Unix Signature! Viel Spass damit.
