A few days ago, my FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE based tester (i386) started to fail
in building packages, most notably lang/gcc40, lang/gcc41 and above.
% make install

ldconfig: mkstemp(/var/run/ld-elf.so.hints.iWE9fy): Permission denied

Has any of you ever seen anything like this? This also affects ports
which test just fine on other machines (6-CURRENT, for example) and
have been testing fine on this machine.
I tried to track this down, but failed so far. From what I can tell,
there have been no changes on this machines which might trigger this.
