	The directory /pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-current/tar_files/src contains
	tarfiles of the -current source tree... _except_ for /usr/src/Makefile.
	When people upgradde from an earlier release using these tarfiles
	they will still have an old copy of /usr/src/Makefile with obvious
	Upgrade from an earlier installation of NetBSD & wonder why
	'make build' doesn't work (as well as it could be expected to)
	Possibly one of: (In increasing unpleasantness :)

	a) Copy usr/src/Makefile into that directory.
	b) Create a Makefile.tar.gz for consistency.
	c) Include usr/src/Makefile in etc.tar.gz.
	d) Move usr/src/Makefile into a subdirectory and include it from
	   a 'one line' usr/src/Makefile.
