I just wanted to follow up to let everyone know what my problem
in building the current using the May 2 source codes. It may be
helpful to others. Earlier John Booth indicated that he was having 
problems building a kernel. "genassym" would hang in the compile/XXXX 
directory. I had a similar problem. An additional problem was I was
able to build the "config" program, but it would hang like genassym did. 
I had installed the binary tar files from but the problem
persisted. To make a long story short, It turned out that I had some 
versioned shared libraries hanging around that got bumped up above the
binary snapshot libraires. For example existed at /usr/lib. 
The binaries from May 3 had a libc number So once I cleaned 
up my /usr/lib directory everything worked as expected. 

I would like to thank all those who helped me. It was very helpful
to see your notes.  I would also encourage the very few who flame
to please keep your editorial comments to yourself. It really isn't
very helpful, and I can care less about your insecurities :-)

Thanks a lot.
