I have build current on a fileserver and installed successfully
on a client that NFS mounts that filesystem readonly.

I now have difficulty with etcupdate. I have tried various
environment variables, but have not found the magic combination
yet. E.g.

---------------
# UNPRIVED=1 UPDATE=1 DESTDIR=/net/NetBSD/build-i386 \
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/net/NetBSD/obj-i386  \
TOOLDIR=/net/NetBSD/tools-i386 etcupdate -s /net/NetBSD/src -v

*** WARNING: /tmp/temproot already exists

BTW, the control characters are not printed when I remove the
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX variable. Strange...

Does anybody know the magic combination of variables?
