 Recent changes:  Recent changes:
 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   
   20120216:
           Default for MKCATPAGES changed to NO. Update builds will fail
           unless DESTDIR is cleaned manually. If you built between 20120207
           and 20120216, daily and weekly could have created an unreable
           /var/db/man.db index for apropos. Running makemandb -f or
           the next run of weekly will fix it.
   
   20111227:
           If you built between 20111225 and 20111227 you need to remove
           /usr/lib/libpam.so.4* and /usr/lib/security/*.so.4, since the
           bump has been reverted.
   
   20111125:
           The "rnd" pseudodevice has been added to sys/conf/std, which
           means it should no longer be explicitly listed in kernel
           configuration files.  The line "pseudo-device rnd" should be
           removed from any custom kernel config files users may have.
   
   20111119:
           A problem with the datastructures used by the rndctl(8)
           utility (pointers in datastructures in an array, making 32->64
           bit compatibility very painful) has been fixed in a
           non-backwards-compatible way.  If you replace your kernel,
           replace your rndctl executable too.
   
   20111001:
           the prop_*_send_syscall() functions from proplib(3) have been
           changed and their new version is not backward compatible with the old
           one. So ensure that all consumers of these functions (currently:
           quota2 code and its tests) are updated together with the new lib.
   
   20110817:
           sparc has been changed to use GCC 4.5.3, so any objdir or
           DESTDIR for them should be deleted before updating.
   
   20110806:
           i386 and amd64 have been changed to use GCC 4.5.3, so any
           objdir or DESTDIR for them should be deleted before updating.
   
   20110805:
           The update to GCC 4.5.3 requires a non-trivial portion of
           the tree to be cleaned.  Best to delete both objdir and
           DESTDIR before running this update.  So far, only the
           sparc64, mips and powerpc platforms have changed.
   
   20110803:
           The layout of external/public-domain/xz has changed. To do an
           update build you will have to remove the contents of the OBJDIR
           for external/public-domain/xz/bin by hand as the xz entry there
           is now a directory.
   
   20110410:
           The configuration of src/tools/gcc has changed. To do an
           update build you have to clean both tools/binutils and
           tools/gcc by hand.
   
   20110328:
           Building the Xorg binary was moved into a subdirectory to fix
           ordering issues with "make all". It may be necessary to remove
           the OBJDIR for external/mit/xorg/server/xorg-server/hw/xfree86
           if your update build fails, as the "Xorg" entry there is now a
           directory.
   
   20110121:
           Assembler files no longer use -traditional-cpp.  This can break
           the build of individual parts of the tree.  This is handled
           correctly by build.sh.  Manual builds have to update /usr/share/mk
           and re-run config(1) for any kernel configurations as needed.
   
   20101217:
           The tcpdump(8) program was changed to drop privileges and chroot(2)
           by default. It may be necessary to manually update passwd(5) and
           group(5) in order to make the program work with existing setups.
   
   20101125:
           The latest changes to setenv(3) dissallow setting environment
           variables with names that contain '='. Revision 1.18 of env.c
           assumed that this was allowed. Installing a new libc with an
           old copy of /usr/bin/env causes env x=1 printenv | grep x= to
           break which affects the autoconf tests for dependency finding,
           so building gcc will end up printing:
               checking dependency style of gcc... none
               configure: error: no usable dependency style found
           Fix it by rebuilding and re-installing env.
   
   20101119:
           Recent Xorg updates in xsrc/external/mit/ may cause various build
           or run-time problems.  Delete your entire DESTDIR and OBJDIR if you
           have any build problems with xsrc, or problems with mismatched
           versions between xorg-server and drivers.
   
   20100604:
           The update of ATF to 0.9 causes old tests written in shell to fail
           unless they are rebuilt.  If you are building with MKUPDATE=yes,
           you need to clean the src/external/bsd/atf/tests/ and the src/tests/
           trees by hand.
   
   20100522:
           Recent Xorg updates in xsrc/external/mit/ will cause various build
           problems.  Delete your entire DESTDIR and OBJDIR if you have any
           build problems with xsrc.
   
   20100522:
           private section of <ctype.h> was splitted, and now mklocale(1)
           include ctype_local.h, so you have to make cleandir in tools/mklocale.
   
   20100520:
           The location of the xkb compiled descriptions has changed. Please
           remove usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/compiled from your $DESTDIR.
   
   20100222:
           The shared objects file extension has been changed from .so to
           .pico, in order to avoid conflicts with shared libraries names
           libXX.so.  All now stale regular .so files can be removed from
           your object directories.
   
   20100204:
           The termcap database has been removed from the sources,
           but has not been marked obsolete so it is not removed
           from the system when upgrading.
           As such, you will need to remove them from your object
           and destination directories.
   
   20091101:
           After updating, it may be necessary to make the 'cleandir'
           target in src/tools/yacc/ and in src/usr.bin/yacc/ before a
           'build.sh -u tools' or 'build.sh -u distribution'.  Ditto
           src/tools/lex/ and src/usr.bin/lex/.
   
   20091001:
           On amd64 you must rebuild tools (to get the new binutils)
           before building a kernel, or the build fails on cpufunc.S.
   
   20091001:
           An error will create a ./usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/compiled/xkb
           symlink, failing the build.  Delete the link, and the subdir
           it is in, and retry your build.
   
   20090718:
           libc build changed so that strchr() provides the extra entry
           point for index(). Update build of libc.a (and libc_pic.a)
           may fail because the archive contains the unwanted index.o.
           (Similarly for strrchr() and rindex().)
   
   20090709:
           Native Xorg was upgraded again.  Builds will probably fail again
           without a clean objdir, at least for src/external/mit/xorg.
   
   20090616:
           Native Xorg was upgraded.  Builds will need a clean objdir for
           src/external/mit/xorg.  Upgrading a system from sets will not
           work properly yet as the /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
           subdirectory has been changed into a file, and this needs to
           be manually "rm -r"'ed before installing xbase.tgz.
   
   20090501:
           Several new functions were added to string.h/libc, and this
           can cause autoconf problems during the tool build for people
           who fail to clean out their tools objects properly. If you
           note messages about stpcpy, stpncpy or strnlen accompanying a
           failure during the tool build, clean out all your tools
           objects and start again.
   
   20090325:
           The i386 port was switched to i486 default toolchain.  This requires
           cleaning your src/tools directory and $TOOLDIR and rebuilding them.
   
   20090126:
           The __posix_fadvise50 system call changed assembly stub type. You
           need to 'rm -f __posix_fadvise50.*' in the libc build directory
           to avoid using the old assembly stub.
   
   20090202:
           pkg_install now depends on the pkgdb cache for automatic conflict
           detection.  It is recommented to rebuild the cache with
           ``pkg_admin rebuild''.
   
 20090110:  20090110:
         time_t and dev_t have been bumped to 64 bit quantities. To upgrade:          time_t and dev_t have been bumped to 64 bit quantities. To upgrade:

              upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during
              boot, and the automated rotating of files in /var/log by
              newsyslog(8), may mean that you do not have to remove the
              files manually.
           7. The optional accounting file (/var/account/acct, see
              accton(8)) has not been versioned, and will need to be
              removed.  The automatic rotation of the accounting file by
              /etc/daily limits the bad consequences of failure to remove
              the file.
           8. Application software that writes time_t to binary files on
              disk will break or need attention. Most notably: if you are
              using PostgreSQL < 8.4, you need to dump your databases,
              rebuild PostgreSQL with the new time_t, then restore.

           A regression in binary compatibility for pthread_mutex_t has
           been fixed. Unfortunately, the price is breaking compatibility
           for -current.
   
           Threaded programs (using libpthread) and C++ programs (using
