Yeah - it ended up being naught but a missing "include" directive. I
actually deleted the compile directory, so that it would have as fresh
a start as is possible. (Um... Before I started compiling, that is. I
didn't wipe it out for that one include! Heh.)
Someone said that the fix had been popped into the official sources, so
I guess it's a non-issue now, although my last sup didn't overwrite the
changes I'd made... I need to look at how sup works, I guess.
Oh. Wait. While I've got your ear... I *hate* having PID_MAX set to a
five-digit number. Is there any way I can change it from my config file?
Or must I actually edit it from within /sys/sys/proc.h? Just curious. It
would be far more convenient to have that be modifiable from within the
If there isn't a workable method now, how can I submit changes to the
official source? Something like this, applied to /sys/sys/proc/h:

Also, I've got a couple drive quirks that should make it into the source.
I'd love to submit both this and those... (Well... There's one quirk that
needs to be re-confirmed, so I've actually only got two quirks to submit.)
Thanks in advance for the pointers!
