I, too am having difficulty with the flist, but perhaps a somewhat
different one.  I'm trying to compile sets and sourcesets using and the reachover facility for X11.  I have tried this a
number of times with fresh checkouts from CVS.  I consistently get
things like the following when building sets:

     /usr/src/obj.i386/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6ZF-i386/bin/nbmake checkflist
     DESTDIR=/usr/src/destdir.i386  MACHINE=i386 MACHINE_ARCH=i386  CKSUM=/usr/src/obj.i386/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6ZF-i386/bin/nbcksum MAKE=/usr/src/obj.i386/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6ZF-i386/bin/nbmake MTREE=/usr/src/obj.i386/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6ZF-i386/bin/nbmtree  MKTEMP=/usr/src/obj.i386/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6ZF-i386/bin/nbmktemp PAX=/usr/src/obj.i386/tooldir.NetBSD-1.6ZF-i386/bin/nbpax HOST_SH=sh sh /usr/src/distrib/sets/checkflist  -b

     ============  3 extra files  ===============
     Files in DESTDIR but missing from flist.
     File is obsolete or flist is out of date ?
     =========  end of 3 extra files  ===========

     *** Failed target:  checkflist

The details of what is incorrect in flist vary from day to day, but
there always seems to be an incompatibility.

Is there some magic I am missing or is this some interaction with the
new X11 reachover handling?

Also, building sourcesets, although it succeeds, never writes the X11
source sets.  Is that supposed to happen with the reachover stuff?

Thanks for your help.
