 All files I downloaded are from an R4. However, I have some new info.
 I started rpc.nfsd with the '-l' option. And this is what shows up in
 /var/adm/messages :

 ``Mar 22 12:53:26 elpc6 nfsd[5351]: < /export/sbin/init
   Mar 22 12:53:26 elpc6 nfsd[5351]: < /export/bin/bash''

 So, the kernel seems to be requesting those files (and receiving them ?).
 You could be right about the dynamic libraries. But, before I reinstall
 the entire root fs, I want to make sure *that* is the problem. Does
 any of you kind people have a statically linked program I could use to
 test, e.g. a Hello World program ?

 BTW, the 'file' commando recognizes PPC binaries. But can it make a 
 distinction between statically and dynamically linked binaries (I know
 it can for i386 arch) ? E.g., when I do a 'file' on my PPC init :

 ``sbin/init: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1''

 and on my i386 /sbin/init :

 ``/sbin/init: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1,
               statically linked, stripped''

 Thank you,
