sysctl segfaulting

I experimented some more and found something even more funny: A sysctl binary 
copied over from a FreeBSD 5.5 machine works (the FreeBSD 6 box with the 
segfaulting sysctl has the 5.x compat libraries installed).

So I tried recompiling libc with debug cflags ("-g3 -O -pipe"), but this only 
makes the backtrace in gdb much longer, but still without any function names.
