 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   
   20120813:
           The update of openssl requires cleaning both the openssl build
           directory and DESTDIR; update builds done without taking these
           steps may fail, or if not, have been observed to cause
           third-party software to link incorrectly.
   
   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 unreadable
           /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.
