Those happen, and are usually fixed by reading UPDATING and doing what it
recommends (or in the case of obvious breaks, waiting a day, updating and
running the build again).

-current is built by umpteen people (like eg me), and on current and
releases and .. my Azubi even managed to build release on Linux with very
little coaching, it's not hard, usually.

If you can't get it built using with fairly simple mk.conf -ever-
(and not just "this one checkout"), there's something wrong with your
machine or installation.

That is IMO asking for interesting times.
