	current-users is probably the best place to post questions
	regarding problems with '-current'.

	To upgrade to -current form 1.2 the following will _probably_
		cd /usr/src
		make includes
		cd share/mk
		make install
		cd ../../usr.bin/make
		make cleandir && make && make install
		cd ../../usr.sbin/config
		make cleandir && make && make install
		cd ../../sys/arch/`uname -m`/conf
		### Copy GENERIC to MYCONF then edit MYCONF to taste
		rm -rf ../compile/MYCONF
		config MYCONF
		cd ../compile/MYCONF
		mv /netbsd /onetbsd
		mv netbsd /
		### reboot - if you have problems boot /onetbsd and swap
		### it back over netbsd.
		cd /usr/src
		make build
	Good luck!
