System: NetBSD orwell.southern.net 1.2C NetBSD 1.2C (_SUN4C+FB_) #2: Mon Feb 17 11:48:22 GMT 1997 email@example.com:/usr/src/sys/arch/sparc/compile/_SUN4C+FB_ sparc
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.
