Using a source tree updated via cvs yesterday evening...

I've installed an up-to-date /usr/bin/make and an up-to-date

Using the "old" method of simply running "make build" from
the top-level /usr/src directory, I get the following failure while
making do-distrib-dirs:

alpha1:src {121} make DESTDIR=/home/paul/newroot.alpha do-distrib-dirs
(cd /usr/src/etc && make DESTDIR=/home/paul/newroot.alpha distrib-dirs)
install  -d -o root -g wheel -m 755 /home/paul/newroot.alpha
mtree -def mtree/NetBSD.dist -p /home/paul/newroot.alpha/ -U 
rm -f /home/paul/newroot.alpha/sys
install  -l s -o root -g wheel -m 755  usr/src/sys /home/paul/newroot.alpha/sys
install: usr/src/sys: No such file or directory

I've also tried to use, and it fails while trying to "make
depend" in tools/dbsym - seems it wants to look for a source file named
".c"!  (yup, no file name, just a dot-c).

Any clues?
