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.  ;-)
