I've been trying to upgrade -current using the sources from anoncvs
on May 17th (and then using sources from anoncvs around May 18th,
~noon GMT).

I haven't noticed anything in source-changes, that would obviously (for my
untrained eye) fix the problem shown below, so I'm asking which of the
standard solutions should I choose (instead of the "lock'n'load" option of
using -E -D /):

	- try "cvs update" until I get a proper snapshot
	- fix some file/dependency in my source/destdir
	- wait for a fix to appear in anoncvs (and then 'cvs update')

Here is what I get when I try to upgrade (from ~1 month old -current):
(the following is my typical build, NOT cut&paste; just for background):

  # cd /blah
  # rm -rf destdir
  # cd /usr/src
  # make cleandir
  # ./ tools
  # ./ -T /usr/obj/tools kernel=MYKERNEL
  <copy MYKERNEL/netbsd to /netbsd>
  <reboot new kernel>
  # cd /usr/src
  # ./ -D /blah/destdir -T /usr/obj/tools build

The build succeeds, but then the following fails:
(this is cut&paste with paths edited to use /blah for short):

# ./ -D /blah/destdir -T /usr/obj/tools install=/

And finally, since it may have something to do with this (although
"it did work before"), relevant entries from /etc/mk.conf:

MKOBJDIRS=              yes
TOOLDIR=                /usr/obj/tools
