 20021009:  20100204:
         A new attribute dependency syntax was introduced to config(8),          The termcap database has been removed from the sources,
         which is now used by the SCSI configuration description.  Users          but has not been marked obsolete so it is not removed

         kernel.          As such, you will need to remove them from your object
           and destination directories.
 20021003:  
         Several changes have been made to the autoconfiguration  20091101:
         framework.  Users must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config          After updating, it may be necessary to make the 'cleandir'
         before building a new kernel.          target in src/tools/yacc/ and in src/usr.bin/yacc/ before a
           'build.sh -u tools' or 'build.sh -u distribution'.  Ditto
 20020922:          src/tools/lex/ and src/usr.bin/lex/.
         MKDYNAMICROOT=yes enabled by default, which means that  
         certain shared libraries are installed into /lib, the shared  20091001:
         linker is installed into /libexec, and all programs in /bin          On amd64 you must rebuild tools (to get the new binutils)
         and /sbin are dynamically linked.          before building a kernel, or the build fails on cpufunc.S.
         If you do not use "make build", you should ensure that  
         you have the libraries and shared linker in the new locations,  20091001:
         with:          An error will create a ./usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/compiled/xkb
                 make do-lib-csu do-lib-libc do-lib do-gnu-lib do-ld.elf_so          symlink, failing the build.  Delete the link, and the subdir
           it is in, and retry your build.
 20020917:  
         USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN has been replaced with:  20090718:
             -   TOOLCHAIN_MISSING -- set to "yes" on platforms for which          libc build changed so that strchr() provides the extra entry
                 there is no working in-tree toolchain (hppa, ns32k, sh5,          point for index(). Update build of libc.a (and libc_pic.a)
                 x86_64).          may fail because the archive contains the unwanted index.o.
             -   EXTERNAL_TOOLCHAIN -- if defined by the user, points to the          (Similarly for strrchr() and rindex().)
                 root ofan external toolchain (e.g. /usr/local/gnu).  This  
                 enables the cross-build framework even for TOOLCHAIN_MISSING  20090709:
                 platforms.          Native Xorg was upgraded again.  Builds will probably fail again
           without a clean objdir, at least for src/external/mit/xorg.
 20020906:  
         gehenna-devsw has been merged into the trunk. Need to update and  20090616:
         reinstall usr.sbin/config before build the kernel.          Native Xorg was upgraded.  Builds will need a clean objdir for
           src/external/mit/xorg.  Upgrading a system from sets will not
 20020822:          work properly yet as the /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/pc
         Crunched rescue tools (contents of /bin and /sbin, plus others)          subdirectory has been changed into a file, and this needs to
         are now provided in /rescue.          be manually "rm -r"'ed before installing xbase.tgz.
   
         To ensure that these are built statically linked (no matter  20090501:
         what the setting of LDSTATIC is), use a crunchgen(1) built          Several new functions were added to string.h/libc, and this
         from sources newer than 20020820 (see the next entry).          can cause autoconf problems during the tool build for people
           who fail to clean out their tools objects properly. If you

         crunchgen(1) changed to ensure that the generated program          failure during the tool build, clean out all your tools
         is statically linked.          objects and start again.
   
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/crunch  20090325:
           The i386 port was switched to i486 default toolchain.  This requires
 20020515:          cleaning your src/tools directory and $TOOLDIR and rebuilding them.
         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)  20090126:
           The __posix_fadvise50 system call changed assembly stub type. You
         Add the following into /etc/group:          need to 'rm -f __posix_fadvise50.*' in the libc build directory
           to avoid using the old assembly stub.
         sshd:*:16:  
   20090202:
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):          pkg_install now depends on the pkgdb cache for automatic conflict
           detection.  It is recommented to rebuild the cache with
         sshd:*:16:16::0:0:& pseudo-user:/var/chroot/sshd:/sbin/nologin          ``pkg_admin rebuild''.
   
         also /var/chroot/sshd directory needs to be present (digged as a part of  20090110:
         build process).          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.
 20020426:             This is needed even in the MODULAR kernel because there is
         NBUILDJOBS obsoleted in favor of just using -j.             conditionally compiled code in rtsock.c.
           2. make sure build.sh completes and the binaries in a chroot work
 20020426:             before installing.
         etc/postinstall added, which performs various checks for          3. If you don't use build.sh and you build directly to root, and
         configuration file updates and changes, and can fix most of             your build breaks in the middle, don't despair. Make sure headers
         the problems identified.             are installed properly, and start building libraries first libc
         This should make it much easier to upgrade a system's             and libutil, install them and then continue building all the
         configuration from earlier systems (as far back as NetBSD 1.5).             libraries in src/lib and src/gnu/lib and install them. Once
              the new libraries are installed, you can restart the build.
 20020320:          4. If you compile packages and you notice link time warnings,
         <bsd.lib.mk> needs a new install(1) for it's "-a cmd" support.             rebuild the required packages to update their shared libraries.
         build and install at usr.bin/xinstall before the build.             Any package you rebuild will require rebuilding all the packages
              that depend on it.
 20020319:          5. Next time you run pwd_mkdb with the new binary, the file
         raw IPv6 socket now makes strict checking for sa_family and sa_len             will be upgraded and it will not be backwards compatible.
         on send(2) operation.  be sure to have sbin/rtsol and usr.sbin/rtsold          6. The utmpx/wtmpx files (/var/run/utmpx and /var/log/wtmpx, see
         newer than November 2001 when you upgrade the kernel.             lastlogx(5)) have been versioned, and there is a heuristic
              for utmp. You are better off removing the old files after
 20020311:             upgrading.  The automated clearing of /var/run during
         ssh configuration files were moved from /etc to /etc/ssh.  Beware             boot, and the automated rotating of files in /var/log by
         if you restart your machine from remote.  Note that sshd.conf needs             newsyslog(8), may mean that you do not have to remove the
         to be changed (due to the use of "/etc" inside).             files manually.
           7. The optional accounting file (/var/account/acct, see
 20020223:             accton(8)) has not been versioned, and will need to be
         Users of the VAX port will need to rebuild and install gas             removed.  The automatic rotation of the accounting file by
         so it deal with the now present register prefix used in all             /etc/daily limits the bad consequences of failure to remove
         the VAX assembly files.             the file.
           8. Application software that writes time_t to binary files on
 20020118:             disk will break or need attention. Most notably: if you are
              using PostgreSQL < 8.4, you need to dump your databases,
         ntpd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in or builds             rebuild PostgreSQL with the new time_t, then restore.
         will break as mtree aborts early.  
   20081219:
         Add the following into /etc/group:          config(1) has been updated, and one of the files it creates -
           swapnetbsd.o - has changed format.  You need to rebuild config
         ntpd:*:15:          (done automatically by build.sh) and then you need to rerun
           config on all kernel configuration files before rebuilding those
         and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):          kernels.
   
         ntpd:*:15:15::0:0:Ntpd pseudo-user:/var/chroot/ntpd:/sbin/nologin  20081205:
           If you build with MKX11=no, you should remove /etc/rc.d/xdm and
 20011207:          /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.
         If you're attempting to build a snapshot on sparc64 and are getting  
         reloc errors from the toolchain groff binary this means your native  20081122:
         toolchain has some broken C++ bits.          On i386, various kernel options(4) in GENERIC including
           file systems have been disabled and moved into kernel modules.
         To fix:          Before trying a new GENERIC kernel, you have to prepare the
           following files as well as a new GENERIC kernel:
         Build a new toolchain (i.e. build.sh -t)  
         Use the new toolchain to build and install natively (i.e. /usr/lib)          - build and install kernel modules from src/sys/modules
   
         gnu/lib/libgcc          - install the latest bootloader, which will load a module
         gnu/lib/libstdc++            for the file system from which the kernel is loaded automatically
   
         After this a snapshot will be able to be built.          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
 20011201:          file system module manually on the boot prompt or in the boot.cfg file.
         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  20080827:
         point you do not have a working awk as its ability to do floating          If you built and installed a libc from sources between
         point is broken.          2008/08/20 and 2008/08/26 you got a broken strtouq(3)
           which results in false errors reported by lint(1).
         To build:          Since this breaks the libc build itself, manual help is
           needed -- lint must be disabled temporarily, e.g.:
         remake and install gnu/lib/libgcc            $ (cd lib/libc && make MKLINT=no dependall install)
         remake and install gnu/usr.bin/gawk into /usr/bin (make sure it links  
         against the new libgcc.a)  20080813:
           MKDEBUG build was broken because the .depend files did not know
 20011128:          about .go files. You need to remove all .depend files and rebuild.
         Kernel config information was changed to use defflag in  
         the various "files" files.  Bug fixes to config(8) are  20080802:
         required in order for this to work properly.  Make sure          A regression in binary compatibility for pthread_mutex_t has
         to build and install in usr.sbin/config before attempting          been fixed. Unfortunately, the price is breaking compatibility
         to build a new kernel.          for -current.
   
 20011030:          Threaded programs (using libpthread) and C++ programs (using
         libc/locale/wcstod.c now needs new lint(1). Update lint(1)          libstdc++) compiled after 20070907 and before 20080802 need to
         before building libc.          be recompiled.
   
 20011029:          One way to find affected pkgsrc packages:
         The new document BUILDING.mdoc (view with nroff | more, or  
         see pre-generated .txt and .html versions) describes the build            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libpthread /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         procedure in great detail.  BUILDING, and the USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN            $ grep REQUIRES=/usr/lib/libstdc++ /var/db/pkg/*/+BUILD_INFO
         build process, are intended in the long run to replace this  
         manual update log.  20080731:
           WAPBL (metadata journaling support) has been added, but at this
         Users building a USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN system should read the          time isn't backwards compatible with pre-WAPBL aware kernels
         BUILDING document for caveats.  Generally, BUILDING supersedes          and userland (fsck_ffs in particular).  Please make sure you
         UPDATING for these systems, as tool updating is taken care of          don't use a journaled filesystem with an older kernel/userland,
         by the new build system.          especially an uncleanly mounted journaled filesystem.  WAPBL
           also requires the super block to be in the UFS2 format.  You
 20011028:          can use fsck_ffs -c 4 to update the superblock format.
         src/etc/Makefile now needs install to be able to handle  
         symlinks that point to nowhere. A bug in install that  20080721:
         prevented this was corrected.          Assembler warnings are now fatal if $WARNS>0 and $NOGCCERROR
           isn't defined.
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/xinstall  
         Better Solution: Use the new toolchain and it will just work  20080531:
         for you.          The ioctl number of DRVSUSPENDDEV command on /dev/drvctl changed
           from 125 (conflicted with DRVCTLCOMMAND) to 129. The drvctl(8)
 20011006:          utility needs to be rebuilt and reinstalled as older binaries
         /etc/mtree/NetBSD.dist has been updated to take advantage of          won't work correctly. The following sequence of commands:
         absolute path support added to mtree(8). Older mtree(8)s don't  
         understand the format.            $ (cd sys/sys/ && nbmake-$arch includes)
             $ (cd sbin/drvctl/ && nbmake-$arch clean)
         Solution: update and reinstall usr.sbin/mtree            $ (cd sbin/drvctl/ && nbmake-$arch all)
   
 20011004:          leaves new drvctl utility in sbin/drvctl build directory.
         Crunchgen has been updated to work via reach-over makefiles. Updating  
         is suggested before running a snapshot build  20080503:
           The <bsd.lib.mk> variable MKPRIVATELIB was renamed to LIBISPRIVATE.
 20010915:  
         The new "ubcperf" code committed by Chuck Silvers removed  20080521:
         a header file, uvm/uvm_vnode.h.  There may be stale .depend          For a while, unprivileged UPDATE builds would fail to
         files that still reference this file.          succeed at the checkflist stage, complaining that
           ${DESTDIR}/stand/<arch>/ did not exist.  A fix for this
         Solution: "make cleandir && make dependall" in affected          problem was committed to share/mk/bsd.kmodule.mk, revision 1.9.
         directories.          If you already hit this problem, update the .mk file,
           remove ${DESTDIR}/stand/<arch>, and re-run the build.
 20010803:  
         grep.info is now built from grep.texi using makeinfo.  Since it  20080303:
         requires makeinfo v4.0, you need to install new texinfo before          Linker warnings are now fatal if $WARNS>0.
         building gnu/usr.bin/grep.  To install new texinfo, please follow  
         the instruction described in 20010726 entry.  20080126:
           The posix_fadvise system call has been changed from an assembly
 20010803:          stub, to a c file that calls an assembly stub. You need to
         (i386 only): i386 kernel now uses new instructions like          'rm -f posix_fadvise.* .depend' in the libc build directory to
         `fxsave' which old gas doesn't understand.  To build the          avoid using the old assembly stub.
         kernel successfully, you need to build and install a new toolchain,  
         (i.e., build.sh -t) or  (temporarily) comment out "options I686_CPU"  20071209:
         from your kernel configuration until you rebuild your userland.          The acpiec(4) driver has been split into two attachments. If you
         See 20011029 above and BUILDING file in this directory for more information.          get ACPI errors before the attachment, please update your kernel
         [updated 20020630 since i386 gas moved when USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN enabled]          configuration file appropriately or see GENERIC for more details.
   
 20010731:  20071115:
         Bootloader update on ELF platforms.  DDB in kernels from before          The it(4) driver has been renamed to itesio(4) and the old port
         this will be unable to read symbol tables provided by newer          argument specified in the kernel configuration file is not valid
         bootloaders.          anymore. The itesio(4) driver now uses the Super I/O address port
           rather than the EC address port. Please update your kernel
 20010726:          configuration file appropriately or see GENERIC for more details.
         Texinfo was updated to 4.0.  To avoid failures when trying to  
         build the included texinfo files, do:  20071028:
           The pccons(4) driver has been removed from the NetBSD/shark port.
         cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo          You need to update any custom kernel configuration file you have
         make MKINFO=no dependall install          to remove any references to pccons (which includes removing the
           now useless XSERVER option) and replace them with the correct
 20010718:          entries for the wscons driver.  See the GENERIC configuration file
         Enabled correct .init/.fini processing in crt0.  The way this          for more details.
         was done was to change a -I directive to cc(1), which means  
         make(1) will have a stale dependency (it will be checking the  20070913:
         timestamp on the wrong "dot_init.h").          A latent bug in dhclient/dhcpd that caused it to be unable to
           enumerate interfaces was fixed.  The bug began to cause
         The symptom you will see is that new programs die with SIGSEGV          problems after 20070911 when the kernel's SIOCGIFCONF
         if you have a stale dependency.          implementation was repaired.  From 20070529 to 20070911 racoon
           could not enumerate interfaces.  (These are noted because
         Solution: "make cleandir" in both lib/csu and libexec/ld.elf_so          normal kernel/userspace version matching hygiene is not
         before starting your build.          sufficient to avoid this problem.)  Ensure that both kernel
           and userland are from after 20070913.
 20010628:  
         A construct was added to uvm_page.h that uncovered a bug  20070703:
         in lint(1).  If you get a warning/error about a non-portable          nbinstall has been renamed ${MACHINE_GNU_ARCH}-install. It
         bitfield, update your lint(1) before proceeding.          calls the target-specific strip program, and the logic to pass
           down STRIP from make has been removed.  This requires a
 20010226:          re-installation of tools.
         Added named user/group to system. Need to hand add this in or builds  
         will break as mtree aborts early.  20070422:
           The way OS emulations lookup filenames inside the emulation root
         To work around add by hand:          has been changed.  Rather than modify the pathname (and copy back
           to userspace) namei() and lookup() directly check the emulation
         named:*:14:          root. One side effect is that absolute symlinks inside the emulated
           root file system will be relative to that file system - unless they
         to /etc/group and add:          start /../ this is useful when the emulated root is a real install
           that has such links.
         named:*:14:14::0:0:Named pseudo-user:/var/named:/sbin/nologin          This might affect symlinks that have been added to reference outside
           the emulated root.
         to master.passwd (use vipw for instance if doing by hand).  
   20070412:
         Now a make build should progress.          The pckbc driver on sgimips IP32 has been removed. Use macekbc
           instead. See the GENERIC32_IP3x kernel configuration for an
 20010219:          example.
         get/setprogname() added. Any hostprogs that may use this will need  
         to be bootstrapped manually until the host system is current.  20070319:
           src/lib/libc/Makefile revision 1.129 broke libc and ld.elf_so
         Known problems: sys/arch/macppc/stand/fixcoff          on many platforms due to incorrect flags settings.  If you
                         usr.sbin/config (adding -DMAKE_BOOTSTRAP to          updated and built after about 20070315, do "nbmake-$arch
