LIP6, Universite Paris VI.

System: NetBSD java 1.6_BETA1 NetBSD 1.6_BETA1 (GENERIC) #0: Sat Jun 8 05:56:04 UTC 2002 sparc64
Architecture: sparc64
Machine: sparc64
	fgen is used to build the port-sparc64 boot loader, however
	it's not a host tool, so the native one is used. If building from
	1.5.3 a badly out of date fgen will be used. a fgen bug has been
	fixed yesterday by eeh, but snapshot being built still have an
	unbootable miniroot.
	./ -m sparc64 -D /var/tmp/obj -R /var/tmp/rel from a 1.5.3
	machine, attempt to boot miniroot.
	Make fgen a host tool.
	workaround: update fgen.h and fgen.l, rebuild and reinstall fgen.
