HEADS UP: /bin and /sbin are now dynamically linked

This isn't *totally* the case. :)

My problem is that in upgrading from 5.1-RELEASE to -CURRENT today,
installworld fails at installing "test" with (hand copied):

===> bin/test
install -s -o root -g wheel -m 555  test /bin
install -o root -g wheel -m 444 test.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1
ELF interpreter /libexec/ld-elf.so.1 not found
*** Signal 6


# echo /rescue/*
echo: No match.

this is from a freshest-of-fresh-from-the-cd 5.1-RELEASE install
(only zsh and cvsup added and network configured) to -CURRENT.

this system is very much hosed from here on.  i have tried sneaky
ways of moving /usr/obj/usr/src/libexec/rtld-elf/ld-elf.so.1 to
libexec, but none seem to succeed, even 
	gzip -c ld-elf.so.1 | gzip -dc > /libexec/ld-elf.so.1

LD_LIBRARY_PATH at this point has also lost its magic.  /stand
has no cp and no ln (or install, even).

i will try again now with NO_DYNAMICROOT set in /etc/make.conf.
