The sysutils/env4801 utility is always statically linked. This causes
problems when the utility is compiled and linked on a system with a
libc optimized for e.g. prescott (a build box) and later deployed on
an i586 net4801.
Fix: The patch below adds an option for linking env4801 dynamically instead
# cd /usr/ports/sysutils/env4801
# make install clean
# ldd /usr/local/sbin/env4801

I fully approve and I'd like to ask Henrik, why not make dynamic
linking the default? Seems like the right thing [tm] to me.

I thought about that, but thought it was best not to change current
behaviour. After all, the author of env4801 clearly intended it to be
linked statically. If you think otherwise, feel free to change the
option to a default of 'Off'.
