 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
           time_t and dev_t have been bumped to 64 bit quantities. To upgrade:
           1. Make sure your kernel has COMPAT_50 in it. Build and install.
           2. make sure build.sh completes and the binaries in a chroot work
              before installing.
           3. If you don't use build.sh and you build directly to root, and
              your build breaks in the middle, don't despair. Make sure headers
              are installed properly, and start building libraries first libc
              and libutil, install them and then continue building all the
              libraries in src/lib and src/gnu/lib and install them. Once
              the new libraries are installed, you can restart the build.
           4. If you compile packages and you notice link time warnings,
              you'll need to bump them and rebuild them.
           5. Next time you run pwd_mkdb with the new binary, the file
              will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
           6. The utmpx/wtmpx files have been versioned, and there is
              a heuristic for utmp. You are better off removing the
              old files after upgrading.
           config(1) has been updated, and one of the files it creates -
           swapnetbsd.o - has changed format.  You need to rebuild config
           (done automatically by build.sh) and then you need to rerun
           config on all kernel configuration files before rebuilding those
           If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
           /etc/rc.d/xfs from DESTDIR because those files were moved to the xetc
           set and will appear as extra files for MKX11=no update builds.
           On i386, various kernel options(4) in GENERIC including
           file systems have been disabled and moved into kernel modules.
           Before trying a new GENERIC kernel, you have to prepare the
           following files as well as a new GENERIC kernel:
           - build and install kernel modules from src/sys/modules
           - install the latest bootloader, which will load a module
             for the file system from which the kernel is loaded automatically
           If you have to load your kernel from a file system which is not of
           the same type as the root file system, you have to load the necessary
           file system module manually on the boot prompt or in the boot.cfg file.
           If you built and installed a libc from sources between
           2008/08/20 and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3)
           which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
           Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
           needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:
             $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)
           MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
           about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.
           WAPBL (metadata journaling support) has been added, but at this
           time isn't backwards compatible with pre-WAPBL aware kernels
           and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you
           don't use a journaled filesystem with an older kernel/userland,
           especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL
           also requires the super block to be in the UFS2 format.  You
           can use fsck_ffs -c 4 to update the superblock format.
 20080721:  20080721:
         Assembler warnings are now fatal if $WARNS>0 and $NOGCCERROR          Assembler warnings are now fatal if $WARNS>0 and $NOGCCERROR
         isn't defined.          isn't defined.
