There are two versions of libkvm. One is called libkvm and the other
is called libkvm.old. According to the Makefile in /usr/src/lib
libkvm.old is only used on pmax and i386. The same Makefile says
that this solution is "temporary". My definition of "temporary"
doesn't include 3.5 years (it has been "temporary" since 1996/03/19).
It looks like everyone who knew why it is like this have forgotten
why we have two libkvm and what needs to be done to remove the old
one. In the future I suggest that people who do "temporary" solutions
send a pr so that the problem is not forgotten.
ls -d /usr/src/lib/libkvm*
cd /usr/src/lib ; vi Makefile ; cvs rm -Rf libkvm.old
See what breaks, fix it. Be happy.
