	The object-file archive format was changed from release 3.0 to
3.5 of the operating system.  There is a utility to convert these
archives to the new format.

		# convert oldarchive.a newarchive.a

	Or you can run:

		# arconvert
		# file oldarchive.a newarchive.a
		oldarchive.a: 5.0 archive
		newarchive.a: 5.2 archive

	That will convert all the archives in /usr/lib and /lib that
are in the old 5.0 archive format to the new 5.2 archive format.
