Hi again,

Recently we were conducting FPU speed tests on a DECstation running 
NetBSD and one running Ultrix 4.3, we noticed that the NetBSD machine was 
at least 10-15 times slower on FPU operations than the one running 
ultrix. Is the FPU enabled properly in 1.2G? Which brings me to my second 

Every time we go to compile the kernel the config program stops about mid 
way with various problems.. what are we doing wrong?
