It will succeed. Here's what I'd do:
After chroot buildworld succeeds (was a very good idea to install to
chroot!), try some statically linked binary from /h/kensmith, e.g.,
/h/kensmith/usr/obj/usr.bin/make/make to find that it now works. In
this case, the crt1.c change was the culprit, and we really want to
reinstall beast using these sources -- with mount_nullfs(8) mount
/h/kensmith/usr/src to /usr/src and /h/kensmith/usr/obj to /usr/obj,
and then do an installworld into /. After that, unmount nulled
/usr/src and /usr/obj, back out the crt1.c change from /usr/src,
and run /root/buildworld.sh, or just let cron(8) handle this.
