I just built everything (a first time, for me, btw) - my latest sup
was May 24. (seems like sunlamp's been down since then and my alter
nate site, sup.introl.com, has had no changes to send, either).

No information on floppy stuff here. But...
I can't run Xdaniver with the recently built libc.so.12.3 in place.
The keyboard and mouse are totally inoperable (read: "dead-as-a-doornail").
If I rename it off (to llibc.so.12.3), everything complains about the expected
version being missing, but (xinit'd Xdanvier) _will_ run and the mouse and
keyboard work. Put the new library back in place and X is as frozen as
an ice cube when it comes up.
Anybody have a suggestion what I should look at/for?
