| >Description:
| In NetBSD 3.0_BETA pf can't co-exist with altq, so if I'll make config wi=
th altq and pf lines, it compiles with errors like:
| 	/usr/src/sys/dist/pf/net/pf.c: In function `pf_send_tcp':
| 	/usr/src/sys/dist/pf/net/pf.c:1355: error: dereferencing pointer to inco=
mplete type
| Same with VERIFIED_EXEC, if I compile it with fingerprint hash (for ex. V=
ERIFIED_EXEC_FP_RMD160), I'll get errors:
| 	kern_verifiedexec.o(.text+0x176): In function `veriexec_init_fp_ops':
| 	: undefined reference to `RMD160Init'
| I think, config should warn about conflicts and dependences like this.

I think this is hard to do. There are far a lot more possibilities that we
cannot predict that easily.
