Greetings, I have several servers running FreeBSD 4.7 and 4.8.
All are also running Lone-Tar for FreeBSD as the backup software.
Today, I updated one of the machines from 4.7 to 4.8, and now for
some reason, I'm getting the following error message when trying to
run Lone-Tar.

/usr/libexec/ /usr/lib/ undefined symbol "__stdoutp"

Now in the past when I had this particular error message (or a similar one),
I simply installed the compatibility libraries from the 4.7 or 4.8 CD.
And all started working just fine.   This time that wasn't the case.

Last week, I updated 2 other servers from 4.7 to 4.8
and Lone-tar works fine on both of those machines.

I'm stumped as to what would have caused this particular
update to fail.
