These days, I cannot build a userland from scratch because
many of my include files in /usr/src/sys/sys weren't copied
into /usr/include/sys automatically.  I guess the reason why
my new supped header files are not installed is the same as
Manuel's problem.

I thought it will fixed soon, but there is no change after 1
week.  I'm wondering what's going on.  Are somebody working
on it?  Or, does my machine have a problem?

Don't put off for tomorrow what you can do today, because if you enjoy
it today you can do it again tomorrow.
