Thanks for the sage advice from those in the know.

I did a foolish mv * /backupdir in the root directory and removed all the root
files and directories.  I could not do backupdir/bin/mv because it could not find
the libraries.  I had a machine (V240) without a CD drive.

Many nice people told me to use usr/sbin/static/mv (and other statically linked
utils in this directory) and this fixed the problem.  Thanks!

Other people should remember this too, judging by all the "You're hosed" type
replies.  Other people were on holiday, apparently.
