Henri, please delete the entire contents of your obj directory to
remove the bad tools that have been built there.

When you run 'make buildkernel' it will use the tools from the last
buildworld rather than the installed ones.

For anyone experiencing this problem, you can do a 'make installworld'
with STRIP= as long as you can boot to single user and mount your file

The problem is occurring when static binaries are installed with the default
option to strip the binaries. It seems that the strip program doesn't like
the presence of the CTF ELF section.

I believe that the buildworld that you have is OK, even when built with the
CTF data.... it's the installworld when things go bad.

Do you need me to send you any files to recover from this problem?
