I don't recognize and can't find that symbol in my (older) 7-STABLE
sources so I'm not sure what might have triggered it.  However,
I don't have ld-elf.so.1 in /lib - it's in /libexec.  Is that a
typo on your part?

At what point do you get that error?  Can you get to a single user
mode shell?

The previous ld-elf.so.1 is saved as /libexec/ld-elf.so.1.old - you
can use tools in /rescue to rename it (you will need to use chflags to
clear the schg flag on /libexec/ld-elf.so.1 before you can overwrite
it).  Unfortunately, there's no backup of /lib/libc.so.7 so if that's
the problem, you will need to recover it from backups or a live
filesystem CD.

Please excuse any delays as the result of my ISP's inability to implement
an MTA that is either RFC2821-compliant or matches their claimed behaviour.
