Oh, okay. I could try that. My problem is, the new machine is apparently
sucking at transferring packages. Also, is there a way to 'make package'
that will politely get all of the dependancies right? "make install" does
the right thing, but that depends on local media.
I may just put a tarball of /usr/src/sys on the new machine so I can try to
hack the kernel into using an IRQ that works. ;-)
