Naw, take it easy :-)

THe entire contents of /bin, and with some few exceptions, of /sbin.
(Might as well rebuild /sbin). There may be some static-linked binaries
elsewhere. You can hunt for them with file(1). Offhand, I can't
find any static in /usr/bin, /usr/sbin or /usr/libexec, which pretty
much exhausts the "usual places".
I assume that after building and installing libc, per the 007-patch,
the same general procedure will redo the /bin and /sbin directories.
(It has worked for me without incident on 3.1-stable).
make obj cleandir depend
make && make install
In each of us, there burns a soul of a woodchuck.
In every generation a few are chosen to prove it.
