 20010226:          If you're attempting to build a snapshot on sparc64 and are getting
           reloc errors from the toolchain groff binary this means your native
           toolchain has some broken C++ bits.
           To fix:
           Build a new toolchain (i.e. build.sh -t)
           Use the new toolchain to build and install natively (i.e. /usr/lib)
           After this a snapshot will be able to be built.
           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
           point you do not have a working awk as it's abililty to do floating
           point is broken.
           To build:
           remake and install gnu/lib/libgcc
           remake and install gnu/usr.bin/gawk into /usr/bin (make sure it links
           against the new libgcc.a)
           Kernel config information was changed to use defflag in
           the various "files" files.  Bug fixes to config(8) are
           required in order for this to work properly.  Make sure
           to build and install in usr.sbin/config before attempting
           to build a new kernel.
           libc/locale/wcstod.c now needs new lint(1). Update lint(1)
           before building libc.
           The new document BUILDING.mdoc (view with nroff | more, or
           see pre-generated .txt and .html versions) describes the build
           procedure in great detail.  BUILDING, and the USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN
           build process, are intended in the long run to replace this
           manual update log.
           Users building a USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN system should read the
           BUILDING document for caveats.  Generally, BUILDING supersedes
           UPDATING for these systems, as tool updating is taken care of
           by the new build system.
           src/etc/Makefile now needs install to be able to handle
           symlinks that point to nowhere. A bug in install that
           prevented this was corrected.
           Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/xinstall
           Better Solution: Use the new toolchain and it will just work
           for you.
           /etc/mtree/NetBSD.dist has been updated to take advantage of
           absolute path support added to mtree(8). Older mtree(8)s don't
           understand the format.
           Solution: update and reinstall usr.sbin/mtree
           Crunchgen has been updated to work via reach-over makefiles. Updating
           is suggested before running a snapshot build
           The new "ubcperf" code committed by Chuck Silvers removed
           a header file, uvm/uvm_vnode.h.  There may be stale .depend
           files that still reference this file.
           Solution: "make cleandir && make dependall" in affected
           grep.info is now built from grep.texi using makeinfo.  Since it
           requires makeinfo v4.0, you need to install new texinfo before
           building gnu/usr.bin/grep.  To install new texinfo, please follow
           the instruction described in 20010726 entry.
           (i386 only): i386 kernel now uses new instructions like
           `fxsave' which old gas doesn't understand.  To build the
           kernel successfuly, you need to build and install new gas
           (gnu/usr.bin/gas.new), or (temporarily) comment out
           "options I686_CPU" from your kernel configuration until you
           rebuilt your userland (and got a new gas).
           Bootloader update on ELF platforms.  DDB in kernels from before
           this will be unable to read symbol tables provided by newer
           Texinfo was updated to 4.0.  To avoid failures when trying to
           build the included texinfo files, do:
           cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo
           make MKINFO=no dependall install
           Enabled correct .init/.fini processing in crt0.  The way this
           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
           timestamp on the wrong "dot_init.h").
           The symptom you will see is that new programs die with SIGSEGV
           if you have a stale dependency.
           Solution: "make cleandir" in both lib/csu and libexec/ld.elf_so
           before starting your build.
           A construct was added to uvm_page.h that uncovered a bug
           in lint(1).  If you get a warning/error about a non-portable
           bitfield, update your lint(1) before proceeding.
         Added named user/group to system. Need to hand add this in or builds          Added named user/group to system. Need to hand add this in or builds
