The problem was with some patch from recommended cluster dated May 16
2000. I had to remove all installed on system patches by:
#cd /var/sadm/patch
#for i in *; do cd $i; ./backoutpatch .; cd ..; done

and reboot so my system became 105181-05. After that I've tried to install
latest cluster (June 5) and (June 8) with no luck. In patch logs there
were messages that "this patch already installed", but showrev didn't show
latest patches.
I checked SMA search engine and found that people have been solving this
problem by placing cluster (or patch) dir in /tmp and `chmod -R 755 <dir>`
on it. And that worked for me too.
Interesting, that I never had a problems with patch/cluster location
before (on other machines).

Thanks again to everyone who replied to me - my ld is working now, and my
system is up-to-dated (kernel 105181-21).
