The problem was a corrupt share library file, but it wasn't ld.so - it
was libc.so (at least sum said it was different from the file on the cd
and copying it over fixed the problem.

> Well, this is now happening on boot, ldconfig called with no arguments
> - ldconfig dumps, no ld.so.cache gets built and almost every command

> trace ldconfig shows it happening with a sig4 just after it trys to

> trace ldconfig on a working system shows the next thing is a rename of
