There has to be something very wrong with the build tools. Sources updated
last night.

sh ./ -O /usr/src/obj -X /usr/src/xsrc -x release

The tools got rebuilt, and the it started to build X.

It is not finding include files that are right there in:


roothog# pwd
roothog# ls
CVS             iasciitab.h     utf8tab.h       xmlrole.h       xmltok_impl.h
ascii.h         internal.h      winconfig.h     xmltok.c        xmltok_ns.c

expat.h         nametab.h       xmlrole.c       xmltok_impl.c

Something is very broken.
