The output is as follows:

root at skynet:~> ldd /usr/bin/su
         libutil.so.4 => /lib/libutil.so.4 (0x28079000)
         libpam.so.2 => /usr/lib/libpam.so.2 (0x28086000)
         libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x2808d000)
root at skynet:~> ldd /usr/local/bin/su
ldd: /usr/local/bin/su: No such file or directory
root at skynet:~> pkg_which /usr/local/bin/su
/usr/local/bin/su: not found

The only other idea I came up with was possibly that because I use the 
net/pppoa port for my adsl connection that was requireing lintl, but 
that doesn't appear to be the case either.

root at skynet:~> ldd /usr/local/sbin/pppoa2
         libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x2807b000)
root at skynet:~> ldd /usr/local/sbin/modem_run
         libc.so.5 => /lib/libc.so.5 (0x2807c000)
