I updated -rnetbsd-1-5 last night and have been trying to build it on my
sparcbook. Initially this was to test my tctrl0 bugfix in the kernel, but
now I am doing a general 'make build' so I can finish upgrading my sparcbook.

Anyway, I got a failure in dhclient:

dependall ===> client/scripts
cc -O2  -Werror   -DCLIENT_PATH='"/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/sbin"' -I/usr/toddpw/rnetbsd-1-5/src/usr.sbin/dhcp/client/.. -I/usr/toddpw/rnetbsd-1-5/src/usr.sbin/dhcp/client/../includes -c dhclient.c
dhclient.c: In function `dhcp_option_ev_name':
dhclient.c:2385: argument `buflen' doesn't match prototype
/usr/toddpw/rnetbsd-1-5/src/usr.sbin/dhcp/client/../includes/dhcpd.h:1641: prototype declaration
*** Error code 1

The following patch fixes it:

Checking -current, it appears somebody already made this change there.

Could somebody please pull this up, or tell me if it's ok for me to do it.
