Gordon Tetlow is working to get this fully supported for 5.2. If you want this now, try the following: First, partition your disk carefully. In particular, make sure that /usr/lib is part of the root partition. (If you have a separate /usr partition, then the shared libraries can't be accessed during the initial boot stages before /usr is mounted and everything fails.) Second, in /usr/src/bin, edit Makefile.inc to set NOSHARED?= NO Then cd /usr/src/bin && make && make install to build your dynamic /bin. Cross your fingers and reboot. Do NOT do this on a system with important data. Trashing /bin will render your system completely unbootable. You can do the same with /sbin, though I strongly recommend that you add NOSHARED=YES to the Makefile for /usr/src/sbin/init. (IMO, dynamically linking init is just begging for trouble.) A number of people have done this, primarily for space reasons (a dynamically-linked /bin and /sbin are much smaller) and it does work. But, the need to repartition your disk is a bit of an obstacle. ;-) Gordon's work will make the special partitioning unnecessary, and provide a single switch for selecting dynamic linking. Warning: I haven't been brave enough to try this myself, though I've heard reports from people who have. ;-) Good luck.
