	Yep. In all cases it shows up as:
NetBSD 1.3H (BRAHMS) #1: Wed Sep  9 08:18:04 PDT 1998

	Yes, it says #1, but it is actually the 5th compile. I've
reconfig'd. ;-)

	Nope. Just the various network and local daemons, like apache,
sshd, inetd, etc.

	I'm assuming it would, as it's always been kvm_mkdb /netbsd. Same
kernel. I can TRY renaming it to /netbsd.BRAHMS-4 and change the kvm_mkdb
invocation in /etc/rc... if it would help anything. Tho, I'm pretty sure
that at least the DB stuuff would be fine (I don't know if it would still
cause the other daemons to segfault, but I doubt it)
