If you are going to upgrade from source, you must use the "make
build" command from the top level of /usr/src. If you don't do this,
necessary includes will not be installed properly. Additionally, it can
result in miscompilation of binaries.
I suggest you upgrade using binaries of the latest 1.4.x release, first.
Then go to /usr/src, "make cleandir" (to get rid of your current build), and
