Today, I decided to use newest bootstrap-pkgsrc, because
pkgtools/pkg_install wouldn't build (under Linux).

You can now run

	make -f makefile.boot bootstrap

to produce a fully functional bmake.  You can then use

	make -f makefile.boot install

for an initial installation.  If you already have macros installed
you can use:

	./bmake -f Makefile

to install etc.

bmake installation failed.

I have a working bmake, so then I did:

  cd pkg_install ; ./configure --prefix=/ --with-pkgdbdir=/home/jeremy/netbsd/usr/pkgsrc && make

cd lib && make
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/jeremy/netbsd/othersrc/bootstrap-pkgsrc/pkg_install/lib'

make[1]: *** [pen.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jeremy/netbsd/othersrc/bootstrap-pkgsrc/pkg_install/lib'
make: *** [libdir] Error 2

So I changed lib/pen.c so it would be like it was before.

Then it failed later with:

cd create && make
make[1]: Entering directory
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../lib  -g -O2 -c main.c -o main.o
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../lib  -g -O2 -c perform.c -o perform.o

perform.c:169: incompatible type for argument 1 of `wait'
make[1]: *** [perform.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [createdir] Error 2

These were same errors as when I tried to build under
pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/. But this is the bootstrap.

My version of wait.h as installed with glibc-2.2.5 has:


# ifdef	__USE_BSD

/* Lots of hair to allow traditional BSD use of `union wait'
   as well as POSIX.1 use of `int' for the status word.  */

#  if defined __GNUC__ && !defined __cplusplus
#   define __WAIT_INT(status)						      \
  (__extension__ ({ union { __typeof(status) __in; int __i; } __u;	      \
		    __u.__in = (status); __u.__i; }))
#  else
#   define __WAIT_INT(status)	(*(int *) &(status))
#  endif

/* This is the type of the argument to `wait'.  The funky union
   causes redeclarations with ether `int *' or `union wait *' to be
   allowed without complaint.  __WAIT_STATUS_DEFN is the type used in

#  if !defined __GNUC__ || __GNUC__ < 2 || defined __cplusplus
#   define __WAIT_STATUS	void *
#   define __WAIT_STATUS_DEFN	void *
#  else

    int *__iptr;
  } __WAIT_STATUS __attribute__ ((__transparent_union__));
#   define __WAIT_STATUS_DEFN	int *
#  endif

# else /* Don't use BSD.  */

#  define __WAIT_INT(status)	(status)
#  define __WAIT_STATUS		int *
#  define __WAIT_STATUS_DEFN	int *

# endif /* Use BSD.  */


This bootstrap-pkgsrc was checkout today.,v and
lib/pen.c,v 1.5

This did work a couple months ago.

This is Linux with glibc-2.2.5.

p.s. Chris, I did post some of my pkgsrc for Linux over a month ago, but I
have made many changes since then. Once I can adequately test them some
more, I will send-pr them.
