I've managed to get a DEC 3000/400 up under netBSD.  What I eventually
want to do is to port our homespun ATM network card's device driver
over; currently we are running it under Digital Unix 3.2c.

However, I've been having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to
install all the sources so that I can compile stuff.

I've gotten all the gzipped tarred sources, and have stuck some of
them where I think they should go.  For example, I've stuck the
include.tar files into /usr/include but don't know what to do about

I don't recognize the file structure of much of this stuff - it's all
tarred from src/blah and I am not familiar with exactly how I should
be laying out all the stuff here.

Can someone provide a pointer as to where I should be sticking stuff
so that all the includes are in the correct place?  Is there some sort
of README or other documentation that I am missing?  I've looked
around quite a bit, but I may have missed something that is right
under my nose.

>From what I can pull from the docs, I should install "sup" and use
that to keep things updated.  However, I've been unable to compile
that or anything else that I'm trying to install.

Thanks for any pointers/help anyone can provide,

Henry Houh
