     That was the point.  However, if people really want common put
into a seperate file, I could do that.  It would be a fairly small
file, so it wouldn't bother me too much.  However, only one person
asked and I really don't see the point.  In order to build all of
userland you have to unpack syssrc.tgz anyways.  However, with the
exception of common, you don't need to unpack base.tgz to build a
kernel (and common was added relatively recently).
