I get this error building a 7/4 kernel with PPP:

limbo::root 239%> make
cpp -DLOCORE -I. -I../../../../arch -I../../../.. -I../../../../sys -DI386_CPU 
-D_KERNEL -Di386 ../../i386/locore.s | as -g -o locore.o
../../../../arch/i386/isa/icu.s: Assembler messages:
../../../../arch/i386/isa/icu.s:161: Error: Unimplemented segment type 6 in 
*** Error code 1

The complaint really has nothing to due with the error, which appears to
be the line with the NETISR_PPP in icu.s:

#include "ppp.h"
#if NPPP > 0
        DONET(NETISR_PPP, _pppintr) <======== This line
        movl    %ebx,_cpl
        jmp     %esi

NETISR_PPP appears to not be defined anywhere.  The 1.0 code doesn't even
appear to have this reference for PPP.

Build a kernel w/o PPP and the problem goes away.
