 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   
   20040516:
           The end-user modifiable X11 configuration has been moved
           from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/<dir> to /etc/X11/<dir>.
           Ensure that src and xsrc is up to date, and run
           "make cleandir" in src/x11 before your next build.
   
   20040426:
           Support for the original dynamic sysctl node structure has
           been removed in favor of the newer layout.  This affects
           consumers of the create and delete interface, as well as
           the dynamic discovery mechanism.  This is believed only to
           be the sysctl(8) binary itself, at this point in time, so
           the only effect of this should be that a sysctl binary
           built from sources dated between 2003/12/04 and 2004/03/24
           will not work on a kernel built from sources dated after
           2004/04/25.  If you need a new sysctl binary but build.sh
           does not work, make sure that your revision of
           src/sys/sys/sysctl.h is 1.112 (or later), and then the
           do the following:
   
           cd /usr/src (or wherever your source tree is)
           make USETOOLS=no includes
           cd lib/libc
           make USETOOLS=no dependall install
           cd ../../sbin/sysctl
           make USETOOLS=no dependall install
   
   20040425:
           The ffs superblock issues listed below under 20040109 and 20030402
           are now automatically addressed by the /etc/rc.d/fixsb script or by
           sysinst when it checks a a filesystem. The manual fsck_ffs -b16 -c4
           invocation mentioned below will continue to work and is now
           automated by those scripts.  Note that under certain circumstances,
           affected filesystems upgraded to a -current kernel first before
           upgrading their userland with the fixsb and fsck_ffs fixes may
           encounter a 'freeing free inode' panic when writing to the affected
           filesystem, so it is a good idea to repair the filesystem as soon as
           possible.  For more details on the fixsb script, see pr install/25138.
   
   20040418:
           statfs(2) and friends have been replaced with statvfs(2). Before
           installing a newly build userland make sure that you are running
           a newly built kernel with COMPAT_20 set. In addition your libc
           build might not work (undefined SYS_statfs symbol) because make
           clean does not know how to remove files it does not know about
           anymore. Manually remove all generated .S sources and objects
           from the libc build directory.
   
   20040326:
           The method by which athhal-elf.o gets pulled into i386 kernel builds
           has been changed. The file is now stored as a uuencoded file in CVS
           and the generated Makefile will use the new .uue rules from bsd.file.mk
           to build it.
   
           This means you must have the latest bsd.files.mk installed when
           building a kernel without USETOOLS=yes.
   
   20040318:
           A bug in the cgd(4) blowfish code was corrected, without
           provision of backwards compatibility, after several public
           notices over several months. Users of cgd with blowfish cipher
           ONLY must dump their data before updating their kernels, and
           recreate cgd's and restore data using the new kernel. See
           (recent message to current-users, URL when mail-index has updated)
   
   20040313:
           On acorn32, the opms and qms drivers have been withdrawn, and
           the old wsqms driver is now called qms.  Kernel config files
           will need updating.  See the ones in sys/arch/acorn32/conf
           for examples.
   
   20040125:
           On acorn32, the beep and sysbeep devices are no longer
           needed, and will need to be deleted from kernel configuration
           files.
   
   20040109:
           Compatibility for old ffs superblock layouts has been
           added, and the restrictive fsck checks have been reenabled
           when using those layouts.  If you have been using -current
           since 20030402, you may find that fsck again signals fatal
           superblock mismatches.  To repair, make sure you have
           an updated fsck_ffs and then you can use fsck_ffs -b 16 -c 4
           to complete the filesystem upgrade.  A message has
           been added to the kernel which should detect this problem.
           See the following discussion for more information:
           http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/current-users/2004/01/11/0022.html
   
   20031203:
           New binutils builds may fail due to old dependencies.
           It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that
           the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.
   
   20031111:
           A newer mkdep is needed.  Error noting that is
                   cc: Ambiguous abbreviation --
   
   20031008:
           /usr/include/sys/disklabel_mbr.h was removed.
           It's necessary to "make cleandir" to ensure that
           the dependencies will be rebuilt correctly.
   
   20031007:
           A sign exension bug was fixed which set all the high bits
           of our newly expanded ffs fs_flags.  This should only
           affect users who installed or upgraded in September of 2003.
           A small utility program was posted to tech-kern which
           should fix this problem, and a warning message was added
           to the kernel which should discover and warn about it.  See
           http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/tech-kern/2003/10/07/0005.html
   
   20030906:
           With the addition of siginfo support the old signal trampoline
           code has been deprecated to COMPAT_16. Make sure that your running
           kernel has COMPAT_16 enabled before building userland.
   
   20030801:
           With the new openssl, there is some header and library shuffling.
           rm -f /usr/include/des.h /usr/include/kerberosIV/* /lib/libdes* \
           /usr/lib/libdes* before building.
   
   20030703:
           Texinfo was updated to 4.6.  To avoid failures when trying to
           build the included texinfo files, do:
   
           cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo
           make MKINFO=no dependall install
   
   20030630:
           Groff was updated to 1.19; it's probably necessary to do
                   cd share/mk && make install
                   cd src/gnu/usr.bin/groff
                   make MKMAN=no dependall install
           (untested).
   
   20030516:
           Due to bugs in the export handling code, invalid export lines
           were accepted before and caused the kernel to panic when
           mountd got restarted because it freed memory that had already
           been freed. This has been fixed and the kernel checks
           export addresses very strictly. If you upgrade your kernel,
           make sure you also upgrade mountd, because if your export
           file contains lines with an old inet4 address syntax (i.e.
           a.b.c or a.b or a), they will get rejected by the new kernel.
   
   20030402:
           The superblock layout for FFS was changed.  If you have 1.6
           fsck binaries, they will signal a fatal superblock mismatch
           with the first alternate, because they compare too many
           fields (even ones that aren't useful).  If possible, upgrade
           your fsck_ffs binary before using a new kernel.
           None of this signals actual filesystem damage.
   
   20030324:
           sendmail version 8.12.8 was imported.  Since sendmail is
           now setgid to the smmsp group, and runs in "collection"
           mode for most common activities, there is a new config
           file called submit.cf that needs to live in /etc/mail.
           The generic submit.cf sample in /usr/share/sendmail/cf
           is named netbsd-msp.cf.  Upgrading your regular sendmail
           configuration file is also strongly advised.
   
           See the section named "MESSAGE SUBMISSION PROGRAM" in
           the updated /usr/share/sendmail/README file for more
           information.
   
   20030117:
           Texinfo was updated to 4.3.  To avoid failures when trying to
           build the included texinfo files, do:
   
           cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo
           make MKINFO=no dependall install
   
   20021223:
           The METALOG format changed slightly, to remove the leading
           "${DESTDIR}" from path names.
           This only affects people building with UNPRIVED.
           For complete safety, remove the DESTDIR entirely and
           update tools/mtree, before running make build.
   
   20021219:
           CVS repository layout was changed.  See the following for details
           if you are using (anonymous) cvs to update your tree.
   
           http://mail-index.NetBSD.org/netbsd-announce/2002/12/19/0000.html
   
   20021219:
           install(1) had a '-N dbdir' option added, to specify an
           alternate location to look up users & groups (instead
           of the host system passwd(5) and group(5) databases).
   
           The build system was modified to take advantage of
           this option (using ${NETBSDSRCDIR}/etc), so if you
           use USETOOLS==no, you may have to rebuild and
           reinstall usr.bin/xinstall first.
   
   20021130:
           fparseln(3) moved from libutil to libc.
           If building to DESTDIR=/, reinstall the includes
           and rebuild libc:
                   make includes
                   make do-lib-libc
           If using build.sh, "cd tools/compat && make clean"
           before rebuilding the tools.
   
   20021126:
           The mk.conf(5) variable SYS_INCLUDE has been deprecated,
           including the optional "SYS_INCLUDE=symlinks" support.
           All header files, including <sys/*.h> are copied into
           /usr/include.
   
   20021121:
           The C run-time support files crtbegin.o and crtend.o
           (and their companions crtbeginS.o and crtendS.o) were
           split up, with new crti.o and crtn.o files resulting.
           This means that libtool needs to be rebuilt once the
           new libraries are installed.  The process of rebuilding
           libtool will cause it to automatically notice the new
           required files, but it *must* be rebuilt in order to
           do this.
   
           An out-of-date libtool will result in shared libraries
           which lack _init() and _fini() routines, which means that
           their global contructors/destructors will not be invoked.
   
   20021121:
           A bug related to how ARM ELF objects were tagged has been
           corrected.
   
           NetBSD ARM ELF uses the soft-VFP floating point model by
           default.  However, the assembler lacked support for marking
           objects as using the VFP floating point format, and the
           compiler was not properly passing the flag indicating "soft-VFP"
           to the assembler.
   
           Unfortunately, this means that the linker will now consider
           old (i.e. not marked "softvfp") NetBSD ARM ELF objects to be
           incompatible with new (properly marked) objects.
   
           The problem will only manifest itself if you attempt to compile
           a new program using the fixed toolchain, and link that program
           against old libraries which do not have the proper "softvfp"
           markings.  ALL OF YOUR EXISTING BINARIES AND SHARED LIBRARIES
           WILL CONTINUE TO WORK PROPERLY.
   
           The only work-around for the problem is to recompile all of
           the libraries on the system.  The easiest way to do this for
           system libraries is to install a binary snapshot; they are
           generally available on releng.NetBSD.org.  Any packages you
           have installed which supply libraries will have to be recompiled
           if you wish to link new programs against those libraries.
   
           If you have questions about this matter, please contact
           port-arm@NetBSD.org.
   
   20021011:
           Systrace has been improved to support privilege elevation.
           Updating the kernel requires the userland part of systrace
           to be rebuilt.
   
   20021010:
           The config(8) grammar was changed to allow options to register
           dependencies on attributes, as well as other options.  Users
           must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config before building a new
           kernel.
   
   20021009:
           A new attribute dependency syntax was introduced to config(8),
           which is now used by the SCSI configuration description.  Users
           must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config before building a new
           kernel.
   
   20021003:
           Several changes have been made to the autoconfiguration
           framework.  Users must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config
           before building a new kernel.
   
   20021001:
           The i386mp branch has been merged.  To compile a kernel, users
           will need to add the option 'cpu* at mainbus?' to their configuration
           file.  Multiprocessor kernels will need
           ioapic*         at mainbus? apid ?
           options         MULTIPROCESSOR
           options         COM_MPLOCK
   
   20020922:
           MKDYNAMICROOT=yes enabled by default, which means that
           certain shared libraries are installed into /lib, the shared
           linker is installed into /libexec, and all programs in /bin
           and /sbin are dynamically linked.
           If you do not use "make build", you should ensure that
           you have the libraries and shared linker in the new locations,
           with:
                   make do-lib-csu do-lib-libc do-lib do-gnu-lib do-ld.elf_so
   
   20020917:
           USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN has been replaced with:
               -   TOOLCHAIN_MISSING -- set to "yes" on platforms for which
                   there is no working in-tree toolchain (hppa, ns32k, sh5,
                   x86_64).
               -   EXTERNAL_TOOLCHAIN -- if defined by the user, points to the
                   root of an external toolchain (e.g. /usr/local/gnu).  This
                   enables the cross-build framework even for TOOLCHAIN_MISSING
                   platforms.
   
   20020906:
           gehenna-devsw has been merged into the trunk. Need to update and
           reinstall usr.sbin/config before building the kernel.
   
   20020822:
           Crunched rescue tools (contents of /bin and /sbin, plus others)
           are now provided in /rescue.
   
           To ensure that these are built statically linked (no matter
           what the setting of LDSTATIC is), use a crunchgen(1) built
           from sources newer than 20020820 (see the next entry).
   
   20020820:
           crunchgen(1) changed to ensure that the generated program
           is statically linked.
   
           Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/crunch
   
   20020605:
           smmsp user/group has been added for sendmail.
   
           Add the following into /etc/group:
   
           smmsp:*:17:
   
           and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):
   
           smmsp:*:17:17::0:0:Sendmail Message Submission Program:/nonexistent:/sbin/nologin
   
   20020515:
           sshd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in, or sshd
           will not let you log in (with default, or UsePrivlegeSeparation=yes)
   
           Add the following into /etc/group:
   
           sshd:*:16:
   
           and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):
   
           sshd:*:16:16::0:0:& pseudo-user:/var/chroot/sshd:/sbin/nologin
   
           Also /var/chroot/sshd directory needs to be present (digged as part of
           the build process).
   
   20020426:
           NBUILDJOBS obsoleted in favor of just using -j.
   
   20020426:
           etc/postinstall added, which performs various checks for
           configuration file updates and changes, and can fix most of
           the problems identified.
           This should make it much easier to upgrade a system's
           configuration from earlier systems (as far back as NetBSD 1.5).
   
   20020320:
           <bsd.lib.mk> needs a new install(1) for its "-a cmd" support.
           Build and install at usr.bin/xinstall before the build.
   
   20020319:
           Raw IPv6 socket now makes strict checking for sa_family and sa_len
           on send(2) operation.  Be sure to have sbin/rtsol and usr.sbin/rtsold
           newer than November 2001 when you upgrade the kernel.
   
   20020311:
           ssh configuration files were moved from /etc to /etc/ssh.  Beware
           if you restart your machine from remote.  Note that sshd.conf needs
           to be changed (due to the use of "/etc" inside).
   
   20020223:
           Users of the VAX port will need to rebuild and install gas
           so it deal with the now present register prefix used in all
           the VAX assembly files.
   
   20020118:
           ntpd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in or builds
           will break as mtree aborts early.
   
           Add the following into /etc/group:
   
           ntpd:*:15:
   
           and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):
   
           ntpd:*:15:15::0:0:Ntpd pseudo-user:/var/chroot/ntpd:/sbin/nologin
   
   20011207:
           If you're attempting to build a snapshot on sparc64 and are getting
           reloc errors from the toolchain groff binary this means your native
           toolchain has some broken C++ bits.
   
           To fix:
   
           Build a new toolchain (i.e. build.sh -t)
           Use the new toolchain to build and install natively (i.e. /usr/lib)
   
           gnu/lib/libgcc
           gnu/lib/libstdc++
   
           After this a snapshot will be able to be built.
   
   20011201:
           In order for a sparc64 build to work you must have a working awk. If
           you've built and installed a system with the new toolchain up to this
           point you do not have a working awk as its ability to do floating
           point is broken.
   
           To build:
   
           remake and install gnu/lib/libgcc
           remake and install gnu/usr.bin/gawk into /usr/bin (make sure it links
           against the new libgcc.a)
   
   20011128:
           Kernel config information was changed to use defflag in
           the various "files" files.  Bug fixes to config(8) are
           required in order for this to work properly.  Make sure
           to build and install in usr.sbin/config before attempting
           to build a new kernel.
   
   20011030:
           libc/locale/wcstod.c now needs new lint(1). Update lint(1)
           before building libc.
