	The "obsolete" postinstall check/fix attempts to remove
	files marked obsolete in the distrib sets.  This includes
	several header files which were installed in previous releases,
	but are not installed any more.  These headers are still used
	by the kernel.

	If SYS_INCLUDES=symlinks, these obsolete files are not actually
	"installed" (they are merely references to the kernel source tree
	living at /sys), but the check/fix wants to remove them anyway.

	Use SYS_INCLUDES=symlinks and do a postinstall check.

	Not provided.
