"Ask not what your country can force other people to do for you..."
System: NetBSD hackworth 1.6ZK NetBSD 1.6ZK (HACKWORTH) #0: Wed Mar 17 15:03:42 EST 2004 perry@hackworth:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/HACKWORTH i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	The rules for handling .uue files in the kernel are broken
	config a kernel, then try to build it with the local toolchain.

	This happens:

#    create  HACKWORTH/athhal-elf-o
rm -f athhal-elf-o
-p ../../../../../contrib/sys/arch/i386/dev/athhal-elf-o.uue > athhal-elf.o
Illegal option -p
*** Error code 2

	Note that I updated my share/mk and everything else -- the
	problem is real, and very annoying.
