Hard disk problem? kdm bug? What is going on here...

The last two days I've had freezes when booting up my old 6-STABLE/i386
desktop. It gets as far as kdm (3.5.2) which then freezes.
When I reboot into single user mode and after I've fscked the disk (or
apparently something that sounds very similar) I can't start bash:
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libintl.so.6" not found, required
However, the file exists and gettext, which also depends on the library, still
runs! Forcing a recompile of gettext fixes bash.
However, I only noticed this as a side effect of kdm hanging (simply because
the first thing I do when I want to work in SU mode is mount -a && bash).
First time it happened I recompiled bash and kdm started; this morning I
tried it and kdm hung again. I rebooted and sure enough bash was complaining
about libintl.so.6, so this time I disabled kdm, recompiled gettext and did a
startx after booting into multi-user mode. Works fine. fsck is reporting no
errors on /usr/local (dev/ad0s1e)
I'm stumped - I can't work out what the connection is between the symptoms.
Any ideas anyone?
