Hello people,

I'm trying to recompile NetBSD and I get a bunch of errors.  One example is below:


obj ===> usr.sbin/bind/ndc
/usr/src/usr.sbin/bind/ndc/obj -> /usr/obj/usr.sbin/bind/ndc
obj ===> usr.sbin/bind/doc
obj ===> usr.sbin/bind/doc/bog
/usr/src/usr.sbin/bind/doc/bog/obj -> /usr/obj/usr.sbin/bind/doc/bog
obj ===> usr.sbin/bootp
obj ===> usr.sbin/bootp/common
/usr/src/usr.sbin/bootp/common/obj -> /usr/obj/usr.sbin/bootp/common
obj ===> usr.sbin/bootp/.WAIT
cd: can't cd to /usr/src/usr.sbin/bootp/.WAIT
*** Error code 2

*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1


After cd'ing into /usr/src/usr.sbin/bootp/ and editing Makefile, and removing .WAIT,
the problem goes away, and 'make obj' resumes without problem.  I've had a little
over 10 of these .WAIT errors so far.  Are they supposed to be there?  Or are these
typos in the Makefile?

PS:  I updated my source tree about 30 minutes ago (right now it's 3:20AM CST)
