It seems that the Alpha port is like the mac68k port from a
year ago -- it's better to track current than to stay with the
release. On my Mac, I would grab binary snapshots and compile my own
kernels, and I was hoping to do the same with my Multia.
What's the best way to move from 1.3 to current on the Alpha
port? I looked for a recent snapshot at ftp.netbsd.org in
/pub/NetBSD/arch/alpha, but found only the compile toolchain. If I
grab the current-source tarballs, how do I go about compiling and
installing a current kernel + userland?
