Hello Simon, hello all,

Thank you very much, Simon Burge, for the instant answer to my question.

The package didn't seem to apply specifically for pmax (mipsel was
mentioned, and the pmax is a mipsel, but pmax wasn't). So I went with the
2nd hint and softlinked ld.elf_so to in /usr/libexec.

This was the case; up to now, I copied and in
/usr/lib from 1.3.3 boxes and linked them both to the lib*.so.4 shortcuts.
Everything seems to work so far, but as the box is operated with serial
console and via network, I didn't try the X server.
