Hi to all,
I tried today to cross-build an AMD64 kernel + userland on a standard
i386 machine. It fails when building 'mv' during the manpage
compilation. The reason is this part of the bsd.man.mk script: "[…] &&
mv mv.3.tmp mv.3" because mv is erroneously taken to be the freshly
cross-compiled 'mv' instead of the "genuine" mv in /bin/mv.
There is a simple fix, that is replacing the 'mv' by '/bin/mv', which
garantees that the correct version of 'mv' is used, regardless of the
order recorded in $PATH. Could it be implemented, or is it inappropriate?
