System: NetBSD 9.99.99 NetBSD 9.99.99 (VALENTINA_NVMM) #0: Sat Sep 10 18:57:48 PDT 2022 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
	When building 'release', the cdrom/boot.iso image does not have
	/usr/libexec/ld.elf_so present on it.  I believe this is because,
	in /usr/src/distrib/sets/lists/base/shl.mi, /usr/libexec/ld.elf_so is
	tagged with "dynamicroot".  /libexec/ld.elf_so would be understandable,
	however, even with a static root, the binaries under /usr are NOT
	statically linked and still require a dynamic linker.

	In particular, on the CDROM, one kind of needs "sysinst" to work --
	which it does not if ld.elf_so is missing.

	put MKDYNAMICROOT=no in /etc/mk.conf {other-args} release
	Change the tag in distrib/sets/lists/base/shl.mi for 
	/usr/libexec/ld.elf_so from dynamicroot to compatfile or something
	else meaningful.
