just curious...

this is the way i've usually done things (since it was easier and
required less reboots), but i thought it was the other way around.  i
thought one was supposed to build a new kernel first so as to support
any new features that libraries or binaries might like to make use of.
so one is really expected to build a new userland before building a
new kernel?

kinda chicken/egg, eh?
