This isn't enough, because ps isn't dynamically linked.  So, just
rebuilding libkvm will not get the new library stuff into ps (but it
will get it into w, since w is dynamically linked).  So, you have to
rebuild ps after rebuilding libkvm.

Also, don't forget to do a ``make depend'' after getting new sources.
In fact, in most cases, a ``make depend all'' should be enough -- a
``make clean'' shouldn't be necessary as long as you do a make depend.
Of course, for the most sure-fire results, doing a ``make clean depend
all'' will guarantee you the best of all results, at a cost in cpu
