after running 1.0 and 1.0a for some time on a 3000 desktop, I decided to
make the move to a 3000T-040 and 1.1 at the same time. 1.1 installed no
problems, and X11R6 works just fine with my Spectrum... BUT I'm having a
lot of weirdness during failed kernel build attempts. Using the same
procedures I always used on the old machine, and the ksrc11 archives
(downloaded on 3 different occasions and cksummed) I seem to get failures
of cp and cc1 (following no specific pattern) even building GENERIC.
Did I miss some small hints? Has something changed? Is there something
dodgy about my configuration?

I haven't had any problems with the pre-compiled software I've been
using... so the strange failures seem specific to GCC and/or the kernel
source archives (as I've obtained them).
I also noticed some strange errors in building the fpsp code... but only
as part of a full kernel build (if I change to the fpsp directory and
make clean and then make, there's no problem. :-/ )
