   I don't know if this has been brought up, but when building
current from 0.9 using Mike Long's useful instructions, there is
a problem with building gcc2 and ld. When libc is built, __strerror
isn't included in strerror.o, which is needed for perror, which is
used by gcc2 and ld. By copying strerror.c to __strerror.c, removing
strerror(), and adding __strerror.c to the, it built
without a hitch.
   Oh yes, and make won't make from 0.9 without adding
-DMACHINE_ARCH=\"i386\" (or whatever) to CFLAGS in the Makefile.
