 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
   
   20030402:
           The superblock layout for FFS was changed.  If you have 1.6
           fsck binaries, they will signal a fatal superblock mismatch
           with the first alternate, because they compare too many
           fields (even ones that aren't useful).  If possible, upgrade
           your fsck_ffs binary before using a new kernel.
           None of this signals actual filesystem damage.
   
   20030324:
           sendmail version 8.12.8 was imported.  Since sendmail is
           now setgid to the smmsp group, and runs in "collection"
           mode for most common activities, there is a new config
           file called submit.cf that needs to live in /etc/mail.
           The generic submit.cf sample in /usr/share/sendmail/cf
           is named netbsd-msp.cf.  Upgrading your regular sendmail
           configuration file is also strongly advised.
   
           See the section named "MESSAGE SUBMISSION PROGRAM" in
           the updated /usr/share/sendmail/README file for more
           information.
   
   20030117:
           Texinfo was updated to 4.3.  To avoid failures when trying to
           build the included texinfo files, do:
   
           cd src/gnu/usr.bin/texinfo
           make MKINFO=no dependall install
   
   20021223:
           The METALOG format changed slightly, to remove the leading
           "${DESTDIR}" from path names.
           This only affects people building with UNPRIVED.
           For complete safety, remove the DESTDIR entirely and
           update tools/mtree, before running make build.
   
   20021219:
           CVS repository layout was changed.  See the following for details
           if you are using (anonymous) cvs to update your tree.
   
           http://mail-index.netbsd.org/netbsd-announce/2002/12/19/0000.html
   
   20021219:
           install(1) had a '-N dbdir' option added, to specify an
           alternate location to look up users & groups (instead
           of the host system passwd(5) and group(5) databases).
   
           The build system was modified to take advantage of
           this option (using ${NETBSDSRCDIR}/etc), so if you
           use USETOOLS==no, you may have to rebuild and
           reinstall usr.bin/xinstall first.
   
   20021130:
           fparseln(3) moved from libutil to libc.
           If building to DESTDIR=/, reinstall the includes
           and rebuild libc:
                   make includes
                   make do-lib-libc
           If using build.sh, "cd tools/compat && make clean"
           before rebuilding the tools.
   
   20021126:
           The mk.conf(5) variable SYS_INCLUDE has been deprecated,
           including the optional "SYS_INCLUDE=symlinks" support.
           All header files, including <sys/*.h> are copied into
           /usr/include.
   
   20021121:
           The C run-time support files crtbegin.o and crtend.o
           (and their companions crtbeginS.o and crtendS.o) were
           split up, with new crti.o and crtn.o files resulting.
           This means that libtool needs to be rebuilt once the
           new libraries are installed.  The process of rebuilding
           libtool will cause it to automatically notice the new
           required files, but it *must* be rebuilt in order to
           do this.
   
           An out-of-date libtool will result in shared libraries
           which lack _init() and _fini() routines, which means that
           their global contructors/destructors will not be invoked.
   
   20021121:
           A bug related to how ARM ELF objects were tagged has been
           corrected.
   
           NetBSD ARM ELF uses the soft-VFP floating point model by
           default.  However, the assembler lacked support for marking
           objects as using the VFP floating point format, and the
           compiler was not properly passing the flag indicating "soft-VFP"
           to the assembler.
   
           Unfortunately, this means that the linker will now consider
           old (i.e. not marked "softvfp") NetBSD ARM ELF objects to be
           incompatible with new (properly marked) objects.
   
           The problem will only manifest itself if you attempt to compile
           a new program using the fixed toolchain, and link that program
           against old libraries which do not have the proper "softvfp"
           markings.  ALL OF YOUR EXISTING BINARIES AND SHARED LIBRARIES
           WILL CONTINUE TO WORK PROPERLY.
   
           The only work-around for the problem is to recompile all of
           the libraries on the system.  The easiest way to do this for
           system libraries is to install a binary snapshot; they are
           generally available on releng.netbsd.org.  Any packages you
           have installed which supply libraries will have to be recompiled
           if you wish to link new programs against those libraries.
   
           If you have questions about this matter, please contact
           port-arm@netbsd.org.
   
   20021011:
           Systrace has been improved to support privilege elevation.
           Updating the kernel requires the userland part of systrace
           to be rebuilt.
