I'm new to current-builds and I experienced an anoying behaviour.
I've build current yesterday from sources.
"NetBSD bsdhora.home 3.99.9 NetBSD 3.99.9 (GENERIC) #0: Thu Oct 13

Almost everything went on smoothly as I expected, until I rebooted with
the new userland. Authification error due to "pam" could not be started.
Now was the question how to login. I couldn't login as user nor root in
console. However, I could login via ssh as user (?). Could not "su"
I got help from http://www.netbsd.org/guide/en/chap-pam.html though.
I found out with some help that /etc/pam.d was empty (even after a
"/etc/postinstall"). Had to boot up in single-user mode, edit some
nessecary files to put in /etc/pam.d and suddenly it worked.
I didn't see any post of this behaviour in "src/BUILDING". If I had, I
could have edit the nessecay files before rebooting after "./build.sh -U
...or was there error in my source when building which made this
"error". Seems running fine now and it has a nice version number. What
would be the next ? =)
