   I've been trying to get current since the May 13 tar-balls and I have
   seen a similar behaviour as John. This past week I tried aggresively
   toget up to date but I can't figure out how to get past the
   "dead-lock" of "genassym", which prevents me from building a kernel
   and installing a new gcc that gives an "internal compiler error."

There are two things to say about this:

1) Had you installed a kernel first, *before* updating include files
and/or libraries, you wouldn't have such problems.

2) It was made quite clear that there was very temporary compatibility
code in the tree around the beginning of May, and that people needed
update at certain points (or wait till the whole thing blew over) to
avoid getting screwed.  You apparently didn't pay attention.

3) Are you using an i386?  If so, what's wrong with the stuff in the
last snapshot?
