I keep my 3/110 relatively -current..I build a new kernel about every
week, and userland binaries whenever they feel out of date (about
once every other month).

My last sup was on June 30th, and the kernel built fine (actually, there
was one small bug...../compile/libcompat/ had a typo..
COMPAT_OBJS was mistakenly written as COMPATOBJS, so ar complained
about not finding any objects).

This is with 1.2's gcc, and no custom patches applied to it.

Lack of HD space prevents me from keeping all of my bins absolutely
but I've had no problems at all building them piecemeal.
