System: NetBSD prometheus 1.6 NetBSD 1.6 (GENERIC) #0: Sun Sep 8 19:43:40 UTC 2002 i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	I was building a program that caused pwlib to be
	rebuilt.  I ran into an error that caused the whole
	process to fail.  The problem is the entirety of one
	of the patch files which, for NetBSD/i386 1.6, seems
	to cause (rather than fix) a problem.

	The patch file is patches/patch-ba.  The patch is:

 #undef  d2i_DHparams_bio

	By commenting out the "|| defined(__NetBSD__)" (effectively disabling
	patch-ba), the problem went away.  The actual error was:

	And, yes, that really *is* plain old 1.6.  I've watched the
	security advisories that I've seen announced, and have either
	fixed the particular cases or judged that they did not affect
	how that machine operates.  (^&

	On (a-hah!),

	(cd /usr/pkgsrc/devel/pwlib && make) has openssl-0.9.6m installed from pkgsrc.
	I assume that that is being used rather than the system

	I fixed this by simply disabling that one patch.  It is now
	(slowly) completing the build.  It certainly seems to have got
	past the affected file for this PR, anyway.  (^&

	However, obviously mjl supplied that patch for a reason.  I
	assume, but have not tracked down, that the NetBSD OS branch
	of OpenSSL alters a function prototype relative to the
	openssl-0.9.6m from pkgsrc.
