i did 'make includes' and tried to build libc again.  it worked.  but to
feel safe and have whole system consistent i rather did whole update
with, which worked fine so now i have up-to-date 1.6_BETA3
system (i start to like even more now ;), i can't remember the
last time it didn't work for me..)

there was no problem with overload for me due to my update from mirror,
so it doesn't matter for me anyway.  i really don't see a reason why
everyone updates only from the main server, that's what mirrors are for
(and should have higher priority to update cvs tree from than regular user connections).
