Well, I have the following in mk.conf:


These point to current's sources.  But when building 1.6 (/home/NetBSD/src-1.6) it
picks several things from the right directory but it reaches a point where it uses
header files (IIRC) from /home/NetBSD/src, so the build breaks.  And explicitly
setting those variables to the proper directory fixed the problem.

About -O or -M problems... I always use -M, and the build finished properly.  I'm
just trying a build with -O, and it goes fine...
