Undefined symbol "__stderrp"

Since cvsup'ing one of my systems on 10/25 a few programs have been
complaining with this error message:

su-2.03# cvsup -g -L 2 stable-supfile
/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/lib/libm.so.2: Undefined symbol "__stderrp"

I've copied over /usr/lib/* and /usr/libexec/* from another working system
updated at the same time but get the same result.

I've copied over /usr/src and done another make world and get the same

I've checked google for __stderrp and found nothing that seemed
relevent.  I'm not using -current so I shouldn't need 4.x compat libs.

I'm not sure what to do next.


Things that may help:

FreeBSD search.sparks.net 4.9-RC FreeBSD 4.9-RC #3: Fri Dec 19 07:44:15

Any clues greatly appreciated.
