   20090110:
           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
           kernels.
