gdb & nm don't work anymore (moved to ELF)

I compiled the system using 'make aout-to-elf-build' and 'make
aout-to-elf-install' recently, and now gdb and nm don't recognize
FreeBSD object files.  What did I do wrong?  /etc/objformat has
OBJFORMAT=elf. FreeBSD-3.0 system.  Error messages posted below, TIA!

1. Setup & Pkgtool don't work anymore...

I can figure this one out. I'm running kernel 1.3.44 now
but Setup and Pkgtool haven't worked since I got into a
mess installing from my CD-ROM. To do the install, I got
boot disks that recognized my NEC 273 but installed a version
of Linux that didn't recognize my CD-ROM b/c it was old.

The setup was a disaster b/c it kept having errors reading
the CD making the install fail. I ended up copying the entire
contents of the distribution to the hard drive and installed
it from there. Problem is, Setup & Pkgtool don't work and
the setup for the CD-ROM still doesn't list mine. Help!

P.S. When you execute Setup or Pkgtool, the screen clears and
you get the prompt back with nothing else (looks like you typed
"clear" at the prompt).
