So it seems the whole poll(2) business is bad. Very bad. sigh.
I've updated the bootstrap-pkgsrc tarball on ftp.netbsd.org; the new one can
be found here:
It is safe to extract this over top of an existing install, but make sure
you use /bin/tar (as /usr/pkg/bin/tar will be unhappy deleting itself during
Two binary packages on ftp.netbsd.org were afflicted by this problem: perl
and curl. I've already updated the perl binpkg, so please do update your
system if you have installed it. I'm rebuilding curl now and will upload it
pkgsrc/mk/ now has necessary fixes to make most autoconf-based packages
build properly, ignoring poll(2), but I'm not making any guarantees yet
about anything for which I haven't made a binary package.
