     elf2aout -- convert a NetBSD ELF-format executable to NetBSD a.out format

     elf2aout elf-file aout-file

     Reads a fully-linked ELF executable (such as a  linked kernel) and produces an equivalent
     a.out format executable file.

     The elf2aout utility is used to convert native NetBSD ELF binaries to a.out format, for com-
     patibility with bootblocks and kernel-reading utilities like kvm(3) and kvm_mkdb(8), which
     currently expect an a.out format kernel.

     elf2aout was originally developed for NetBSD/pmax by Ted Lemon and was first distributed
     with the pmax port of NetBSD 1.1.

     elf2aout assumes there are no multiply-referenced symbols in the input ELF symbol section.
     It may be necessary to link with -x to avoid such duplicate symbols.

     In some environments, the GNU binutils objcopy(1) utility may be a better solution than
