I can't remember what is needed. There are some problems with the a.out

2. und 3. is not needed every time a new current is build. I found some
problems buildung the early January current on top of the November (?)
snapshot. Steps 2. and 3. solved this.

Yes. "make build" takes approx. 49 hours on my VAXstation 3100m76 (7.6
VUPs) (Uhhh, I will do this on a MVII with a 900MB 9" SMD disk in May.
This will be real fun. :-))) )

Is all I found.

If you want. Note: There is currently no X-Server. But a xterm via rsh
is also nice.

500MB of free diskspace without xsrc:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/sd1e 1849381 486934 1269977 27% /usr/src
/dev/sd1e on /usr/src type ffs (NFS exported, local, soft dependencies)
Works well. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

My -current is from early January, I will update to the current
