--- Comment #1 from Tomoaki AOKI <junchoon at dec.sakura.ne.jp> ---
One additional info.
Thoroughout discussion with Kenji on freebsd-users-jp ML (in Japanese),
I feel the old binary is possibly NOT actually a SVR4 one, but a FreeBSD
binary with lost ELF branding and having unusual brand interpreter path.

 *Cannot confirm as he says the program was given from his customer
  [or supplier] in pre-built binary only.

If I understand properly, default 10.2-RELEASE (amd64) shouldn't have
svr4.ko or built-in support for SVR4 in GENERIC kernel. (Would need
custom kernel or special build option.)

Anyway, any binary stops working within major release lifecycle should be
considered POLA violation, although keeping old behaviour after 11.0 would
need further investigation.
