And even in that case, I think the first compile would be #0.

Just for reference, I usually have the various kernels I've made lying
around in root as /netbsd.NAME, and then make a hard link between /netbsd
and which ever kernel I'm running. So I always have the kernel lying
around in its made-as name. An ls -l /netbsd* tells me which kernel's
current (it has more links than all the others).

Take care,
