I have a HUGE volume of mail which, due to circumstances beyond my
control, I am only able to read sporadically, and almost never
so I'm curious (forgive me if I've missed this):
Is 1.2.1 built and retrievable yet? I seem to have trashed my build
last evening because, for some reason, make did not export the MAKE
variable all the way down the tree as I would have expected. I'd rather
not simply restore 1.2 if 1.2.1 looks to be coming out of the pipe soon.
On a similar note, could someone please tell me what I did wrong?

Somewhere after 515, it decided to install into //usr/bin/[wherever]
of to /build/usr/bin/[wherever], from what I could gather of the last
screen full of output, which I can't quite remember accurately.
Now telnet and rsh fail with ENOSYS. Interestingly enough, when
I built like this a couple of months ago, libc from _then_ actually
works. Nothing else seems to fail, only programs which require
DNS lookups, from what I can tell.
