Description bperkins 2003-02-01 18:19:21 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212

Description of problem:
IMHO there really isn't any good reason not to make these statically linked. 
This shouldn't be a problem under most circumstances, but can be a real
lifesaver (it would have saved me a lot of hassel).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cd /
2.mkdir foo
3.mv lib foo
    

Actual Results:  Simple shell uutilities such as cp rm and mv don't work,
because the kernel can't find ld (lor libc for that matter).

Expected Results:  They should work.

For rescue situations, use the rescue CD.  There's no reason to statically link
these binaries.
