Linux abbey 2.6.0-test9 #1 Thu Oct 30 00:05:56 CET 2003 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
I recently tried to cross compile netbsd-current on a Linux system for the first time. uname -p on this Linux system produces: Athlon(tm), this messes up the build process because '(' and ')' are interpreted by the shell. Someone should make the scripts in the build process safe against shell special chars (src/share/mk/bsd.own.mk?).
Checkout netbsd-current, try to build a release on a Linux system with uname -p output with shell special chars in it.
Do something nifty in the scripts in src/share/mk I think. (sorry for not being more specific, but I'm sure the people responsible for the scripts know what to do).
