Well, certain NetBSD docs want you to do it the other way :)
For example, http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/updating.html, in addition to several (non netbsd.org hostsed) walk-throughs.
I did try to build the whole userland and it blew up, last week.
I am guessing that the config and other apps I need are in src/tools, so I'll try building just that and see if it goes.
Although I shouldn't be horribly off, there could certainly be changes preparing for 4.0 I guess (although I'm not tracking that specifically).
One of the syntax errors is at the maxusers line of the INSTALL file, which seem strange, I thought that has been present quite a while.
One piece at a time, I guess.
