Well I supped for the first time yesterday.  I only got the ksrc for now,
but compiling kernels is again, faster.  I'm only down to 620 secs now;
it used to take over 1200 under 0.9 ...

how long does it take to sup allsrc approximately?  I'm PPPd.  I releaize the
1st time I pull it over, it will be quite painful, but how painful?  10hrs?
20 hrs?

I didn't realize that the othersrc dir was only for things that require
help to compile; sorry about that.

I dunno if I've ever said it, but thanks.  This is an excellent product;
it's really come a long way.  0.9 put Linux in the dust (I oughtta know,
I used to use it).  current is an order of magnatude better that 0.9.

Now if I only had a SCSI disk so compiling wasn't counter productive to 
PPP :-)
