If you try `grep libbfd /var/adm/packages/*' you can find out which
package it was actually in. However, having recently done this - I'm
fairly sure it's comes with binutils and in this Slacware release i think
it's on D1. So if you installed the D series it should be in /lib
If it isn't - you could search for the binutils.tgz and manually install
that with installpkg. However, it looks more like you did a partial
upgrade over a previous slackware. If this is so you are probably better
off to backup you own data and configuration files and reinstall from
scratch. The jump from a.out to ELF is too much of a pain to cope with.
