I think (and I haven't been doing this too long myself, so I may be
wrong) that you are right in saying that the problem is related to
when you upgrade, but I'm not convinced about the tooldir stuff.

Basically, "flist" is rather like a bill of loading, that makes sure
everything about a netbsd build is as it should be; checkflist is 
a makefile target that enforces the flist by halting the build.

As -current tends to roll forward like a freight train, the flist often
gets left outdated. The suggestion I made in another reply on this thread
(to comment out the check) was actually something I read in a previous 
discussion of flist on -current.

If you want to find out more, go to the "Mailing Lists" page on,
and search for checkflist.
