I needed to make a new set of bootblocks for a machine that I just
noticed can't be rebooted anymore without inserting a rescue floppy
with an older set of bootblocks.

Actually, this hides a bunch of other compile problems.  I started
going though just commenting out broken directories in the same tree.

It continued on for a while and then stopped at: 

    all ===> gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common
    lex  /v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common/../../../dist/binutils/arlex.l
    mv lex.yy.c arlex.c
    cc -O2  -Werror   -DTARGET='"i386--netbsd"' -I/v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common -I/v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common -I/v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common/../common  -I/v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/lib/libbfd -I/v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common/../../../dist/bfd -I/v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common/../../../dist/binutils -I/v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common/../../../dist/include  -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -c arlex.c
    /v/src/netbsd/NetBSD-current/usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/binutils/common/../../../dist/binutils/arlex.l:30: arparse.h: No such file or directory
    *** Error code 1


Some days are just like that, I guess.

Are we supposed to be filing PR's for -current build failures?
