System: NetBSD kolvir.arlington.ma.us 1.4K NetBSD 1.4K (KOLVIR) #5: Sat Sep 4 18:17:38 EDT 1999 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/u4/sandbox/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/KOLVIR i386
When building the communicator package, it points hte user to
download the US encryption version via home.netscape.com, but doesn't
say (on i386) which flavor to download: BSDI or Linux? Linux 2.0 or
Linux 2.0 glibc?
I guessed wrong the first time and had to download again.
Build the package and see its complaints.
Improve the download message to tell which flavor needs to be downloaded.
