starting with version 17.02, all executables on top of core are
dynamically linked by default [1].


Given the error message, I presume that you have mistakenly added
'ld.lib.so' to the 'build' command of your run script. The dynamic
linker is a library (.lib.so) that is automatically built as a
dependency of any of the normal targets. You need to specify it in the
'build_boot_image' step only.

For investigating such issues, I recommend taking the existing run
scripts provided with Genode (e.g., base/run/log.run) as reference.
