NetBSD voyager 1.4 NetBSD 1.4 (MCNVGR) #8: Mon Aug  2 16:42:27 PDT 1999     mcn@voyager:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/MCNVGR i386

See /usr/src/usr.sbin/ipf/ipsend. Run ./ipsend -d -L iplang.tst. It fails as it interprets the end of file as a " " (apparently). This code works fine under SunOS, Solaris, and a variety of other operating systems, so my guess is the fault is within lex or yacc under NetBSD.

See description.

Unknown. I've tried changing the yacc/lex files to work around the problem without much luck. I've compiled the latest flex and bison code which no change.
