Has anyone compiled and run the sources from the June 8 sup? (i.e.
just before sun-lamp disappeared in a puff of greasy black smoke.)
The libraries seem to compile OK (one bobble relating to curses.h),
but several user-level utilities (useless ones like fsck, restore,
dump... ;-) don't compile. If I were to finish bludgeoning my way
through the minor little problems and installed the resulting
binaries, will I regret it? (I note that the compilation failures
have been fixed, according to the source-changes mail.)
My real problem is that I installed /usr/include with the new sources,
but don't dare put up the libraries until I know it's safe. (And I
have several programs I'd like to compile, too.) Alternatively is
there any way to access the CVS repository? Or is there an estimated
time for when sup.netbsd.org will work again?
