Well, it is not the only.
'cc1' does too, so no kernel recompile. :(

Oh, time to warmup again our routers... :))

Linux is an old slackware 3.1, libc5 (maybe this is the problem - I was
reading about problems with NFS in the VAX Netboot HOWTO)), I'm
exporting this:

	/export/VsII      (rw, no_root_squash)


root@rlyeh:~# l /export/VsII/
total 4
drwxr-xr-x  29 root     root         2048 Jul  3 12:32 include/
drwxr-xr-x   4 root     root         1024 Jul  3 17:30 ksrc/
drwxr-xr-x  26 root     root         1024 Jul  3 13:44 share/

that is:

	include	-> /usr/include
	share -> /usr/share
	ksrc -> /usr/src/netbsd

on the VAX.
