Further investigation,
as core dumps.
cpp core dumps.
/rescue/vi core dumps.

All of these programs are statically linked.  Note, ar and ranlib
have static linkage, and appear to still work but these were not
replaced by the failing 'make installworld'.

Ah, so if I go into /usr/obj/usr/src/amd64.amd64/ar, this ar
is static and not stripped and works!  But, if I do

cp ar ar.new
strip ar

This ar core dumps.  So, stripping static binaries seems to 
break the binary.
