I've finally got all of the tar files for -current (of course they're
all a week old now, ah well).  I got the ones dated 11/27.  It didn't
take me long to run into problems.

1) Compiling the new libc breaks down in the db code.  I fixed the
typo in unistd.h, but my knowledge ran out shortly after that.

2) I have no direct access to the internet, because my company is
paranoid.  Therefore, I can't use SUP, as you need a direct connection
for it.  I thought that I could keep up by looking at the CVS update
logs that are mailed nightly, only to find out I'm missing the one for
Nov. 30.  Can someone please resend the CVS output from 11/30 to me?

3) Can someone tell me the date of the sources you got a working
system with, within the past week?

4) Can anyone suggest to me a better way of keeping up with the source
changes than FTPing all of the files that appear in the daily CVS log?
In general, if there is someone else out there who can't use SUP and
has a working -current system, then I'd like to hear from you.
