I'm confused.  what are all those *.so files in /lib?  sure look like
shared libraries to me.

Matt is wrong. There is shared library support. It was broken for a while -current, but it got sorted out again.

but i'm currently using a 2.0.3 kernel & userland, so I'm in the stone age.

Actually, those were the good days.

maybe I should try 4.0.1 first?  are there major changes in 5.0? (and
hence no shared lib support yet?)

Shared library support is in there, along with a more modern gcc.
Apart from that, the system have just grown larger and slower.
And there are bugs in there, which haven't been exposed properly (I know, I should write some bug reports).
