[things about his build crashing]
The TOOLDIR and DESTDIR weirdness I found with build.sh is persisting.
i.e. My initial "./build -R /usr/snapshot release" placed those
directories just under "src" but the "./build -u -R /usr/snapshot
release" have set the locations to be just under "src/obj". As the
updating builds progress, they're only putting a subset of the tools
under the new "src/obj" TOOLDIR. And parts of the build don't seem to
be happy about this:
(cd /n0/work/netbsd-current/src/tools && /n0/work/netbsd-current/src/obj/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6.1-vax/bin/nbmake dependall)
*** WARNING: TOOLDIR has moved?
*** PREVIOUSTOOLDIR '/n0/work/netbsd-current/src/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6.1-vax'
*** != TOOLDIR '/n0/work/netbsd-current/src/obj/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6.1-vax'
*** Cleaning mis-matched tools
"TOOLDIR has moved?" Yeah, my sentiments exactly. I'm not too sure
what is going on with the above, but I don't think it's proper behavior.
AFAICT, I've not done anything unusual.
A little later, that particular build crashed due to the groff related
"grn" dumping core. Previously the "pic" program crashed. Given that
Emanuel seems to be a bit further along this process than I, and he's
still running into problems, I think the verdict is that you can't
compile -current under NetBSD/vax 1.6.1 (at least as of this past
Friday) without a good deal of blood letting.
Sooo... for the sake of the patient souls who still compile their
NetBSD/vax sources natively, would it be too much to ask for someone who
has dutifully kept up with -current to make a recent snapshot release
available on the FTP site?
