Let's admit that the problem was uncovered, not introduced.  The mentioned
commit of mine is correct (try building stuff statically linked to see).

Sorry, still swamped with real life issues.  I think there are basically
two options for bootstrapping:

- reinstall stuff from some release media (e.g., take the required
  bits from the nearby release tarballs)

- manually build/install the missing stuff from sources (if you have'em)

Then do a buildworld.  This problem is similar to the case when you
lose /usr/bin/make or some other host tool used during the build.
