I build -current (as of yesterday) to build a diskless env for my
ss20 - so I can leave 1.6 on the disk.

The build completed ok (UNPRIV), but when it came to building the

nbmtree: ./var/obj: No such file or directory
nbmtree: failed at line 854 of the specification
Creating base.tgz
Creating comp.tgz

each of base.tgz etc were only 20 bytes.  METALOG entries start

./var/obj/NetBSD/current/sparc/destdir type=dir mode=0755 \
	uname=root gname=wheel tags=base_pkg
./var/obj/NetBSD/current/sparc/destdir/sys type=link \
	mode=0755 link=usr/src/sys uname=root gname=wheel tags=base_pkg

should that be:


No, it complains about that.  Looks like $DESTDIR should be
represented as just '.' in METALOG? 
Still not there though...

There were actually a lot of entries that started with just '/var/'
Once I cleaned that up it looks ok.
