Re: update on Debian/FreeBSD

That's what it looked like in CVS. I briefly considered trying to port ldd from
NetBSD. They are implemented very differently. On NetBSD ldd does all the work,
while on Linux and FreeBSD, it is just a wrapper around ld.so. The difference
is that the ld.so on Linux has a workaround for shared libraries, but the
FreeBSD one doesn't. I don't feel prepared to hack the FreeBSD ld.so yet. Maybe
when I'm more familiar with the system...
