I'm not sure if my sup was for the 17th or 18th, but my /usr/bin/as
went south after the build, and I couldn't compile anything from the
point it was installed. I'm trying to make build again using the
comp.tar.gz from an old snapshot I downloaded. 

This is a danger of make -k build i suppose, or not having DESTDIR set.

Although I can sucessfully build on the pentium, I'm unable to build
the full src tree on the alpha, and haven't been able to for a couple
weeks. Is this the current state of the sup tree? or do I have an 
error in my sources? (The same sources are used for both alpha and
pentium, with separate obj directories, nfs shared src)
