I did just this. There was a .rej in /usr/src/dist/bind/bin/named for
the above mentioned file, ns_parse.y. I installed the one from the
NetBSD-1.4-release and I'm still getting the error. Any chance this might
be a yacc error? At any rate, my kernel compiles with the 1.4.3 patch
applied and I also found out what the domestic directory is. Its the
sources to the security related items. I installed secsrc.gz and the patch
only complains about three files that aren't there.
This yacc error seems to be complaining about the first line of the
file. This is strange because the first line is just the comment line and
as far as I can see there is no end-of-line on the first line.
