You can try to run the statically linked version of sh and try to repair your
system. It's path is /rescue/sh. Possibly ld-elf.so.1 is missing in /libexec.
I would try to mount the disc2.iso and copy it from there.
In worst case I would
copy /bin, /lib, /libexec, /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin, /usr/lib,
/usr/libexec (eventually /usr/libdata and /boot) from the live-filesystem-cd
over to your system. Before you start to copy the files over, run the command
'/rescue/chflags -R noschg *' on each of the paths in question to remove all
system immutable flags).
After your have fixed your system, re-cvsup sources and do a rebuild and
reinstall of world and kernel.
