Yes, sorry, I meant to include the information in my original message.

Here are the relevant bits from my /etc/mk.conf:

# Set source and obj location

# Machine specific obj directories

# New toolchain stuff

(I've tried this both with and without OBJMACHINE - it doesn't make any

The commands I used are (long lines split):

/usr/local/tools/bin/nbmake-arm26 obj (from /mnt/source/current)
MACHINE=arm26 MACHINE_ARCH=arm /usr/local/tools/bin/nbmake -m \
   /mnt/source/current/share/mk obj

This is on a NetBSD-i386 1.5.2 machine, trying to cross build NetBSD-current
for arm26 (which I managed to do just fine about 2 weeks ago).
