Hi all
I'm trying to build the current kernel (i386), but I falled in a trouble:

# cd /sys/arch/i386/conf/
# config GENERIC
../../../conf/files:91: syntax error
../../../conf/files:92: syntax error
../../../conf/files:128: syntax error
../../../conf/files:190: syntax error

...and so on for about 20 lines...

I saw that in corrispondence of this lines there is a pipe "|" (or more) OR-
ing some flags:

file kern/exec_ecoff.c          compat_ultrix | compat_osf1 | exec_ecoff
file kern/exec_elf.c            compat_svr4 | compat_linux

...and so on!

What does it means?
What I have to do?
