I'm trying to build dynamic binaries on i386 and it is almost done, but
all dynamic linked binaries dump cores even with your ld.elf_so binary :-(

Would you please put some working pic binaries for me to
investigate what is the problem with my cross toolchain?
At least, crt*.o binaries built with my toolchain are exactly
same with yours.

BTW, I see some problems during build world:

- Maybe TOOLCHAIN_MISSING=yes is also required in mk.conf.
- lib/libpthread/arch/sh3/_context_u.S also needs fixes for PIC support.
- libexec/ld.elf_so/arch/sh3/mdreloc.c lacks some function declarations
  (and copyright notice).
- Current libexec/ld.elf_so/Makefile implicitly specifies -O3, but
  it might cause some problems on sh3 (and other newer arch).
- libexec/identd/netbsd.c needs to include <stdlib.h> for exit(3) prototype.
  (not sh3 specific, but maybe gcc3 generic)
