Heh, this was fixed shortly after 1.1 came out. You have three choices:
1) Upgrade to -current
2) Grab just the fixed ld.so
3) Hang out for a couple of months and wait for the 1.2 NetBSD release.
   We are just now entering the release cycle for 1.2.

If you want to get on the mailing lists, that's cool. We have many people
who are on, and file bug reports and such. Course, we can always use
more help. Why not subscribe to the lists and help us out?
