New submission from Thomas Nikolajsen <thomas.nikolajsen at mail.dk>:

On master linux emulation has problem after recent ELF update(*):
when linux_enable=YES is in rc.conf, '/etc/rc.d/abi start' fails:
it runs /compat/linux/sbin/ldconfig which fails;
as a side effect it resets the system clock to 1970.

suse_base-10.0nb3 is installed and supplies ldconfig above.

I found that setting ELF_ABI_number with brandelf(1), linux programs works:
linux ldconfig had a ELF_ABI_number of 0; setting it to 3 (Linux), with
'brandelf -f 3 ldconfig' is a work around for problem.
