Hi everyone,
Thanks to the kind help from people on this list, I have at last had 
almost complete success in building a -current system for macppc. 
However, when building the sendmaikl distribution, I get the error 
shown below. I haev tried all the magic I know, including installing 
a new yacc and raising the stack limit to its maximum value, but no 
luck. Does anyone have any advice? This is with sources supped March 
Best regards,

(cd etc.macppc; install  -c -o root  -g wheel -m 444 fstab.* 
(cd /home/hcb/netbsd-current-root/dev; ./MAKEDEV all)
(cd ../usr.bin/mail; make distribution)
cd /usr/pkg/current-src/src/usr.bin/mail/misc; install -c -o root -g 
wheel  -m 644 mail.rc /home/hcb/netbsd-current-root/etc
(cd ../gnu/usr.sbin/sendmail/cf/cf; make distribution)
install -c -o root -g wheel -m 444
