   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:
           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           An out-of-date libtool will result in shared libraries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.
   
   20021010:
           The config(8) grammar was changed to allow options to register
           dependencies on attributes, as well as other options.  Users
           must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config before building a new
           kernel.
   
   20021009:
           A new attribute dependency syntax was introduced to config(8),
           which is now used by the SCSI configuration description.  Users
           must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config before building a new
           kernel.
   
   20021003:
           Several changes have been made to the autoconfiguration
           framework.  Users must update and reinstall usr.sbin/config
           before building a new kernel.
   
   20021001:
           The i386mp branch has been merged.  To compile a kernel, users
           will need to add the option 'cpu* at mainbus?' to their configuration
           file.  Multiprocessor kernels will need
           ioapic*         at mainbus? apid ?
           options         MULTIPROCESSOR
           options         COM_MPLOCK
   
   20020922:
           MKDYNAMICROOT=yes enabled by default, which means that
           certain shared libraries are installed into /lib, the shared
           linker is installed into /libexec, and all programs in /bin
           and /sbin are dynamically linked.
           If you do not use "make build", you should ensure that
           you have the libraries and shared linker in the new locations,
           with:
                   make do-lib-csu do-lib-libc do-lib do-gnu-lib do-ld.elf_so
   
   20020917:
           USE_NEW_TOOLCHAIN has been replaced with:
               -   TOOLCHAIN_MISSING -- set to "yes" on platforms for which
                   there is no working in-tree toolchain (hppa, ns32k, sh5,
                   x86_64).
               -   EXTERNAL_TOOLCHAIN -- if defined by the user, points to the
                   root of an external toolchain (e.g. /usr/local/gnu).  This
                   enables the cross-build framework even for TOOLCHAIN_MISSING
                   platforms.
   
   20020906:
           gehenna-devsw has been merged into the trunk. Need to update and
           reinstall usr.sbin/config before building the kernel.
   
   20020822:
           Crunched rescue tools (contents of /bin and /sbin, plus others)
           are now provided in /rescue.
   
           To ensure that these are built statically linked (no matter
           what the setting of LDSTATIC is), use a crunchgen(1) built
           from sources newer than 20020820 (see the next entry).
   
   20020820:
           crunchgen(1) changed to ensure that the generated program
           is statically linked.
   
           Solution: update and reinstall usr.bin/crunch
   
   20020515:
           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)
   
           Add the following into /etc/group:
   
           sshd:*:16:
   
           and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):
   
           sshd:*:16:16::0:0:& pseudo-user:/var/chroot/sshd:/sbin/nologin
   
           Also /var/chroot/sshd directory needs to be present (digged as part of
           the build process).
   
   20020426:
           NBUILDJOBS obsoleted in favor of just using -j.
   
   20020426:
           etc/postinstall added, which performs various checks for
           configuration file updates and changes, and can fix most of
           the problems identified.
           This should make it much easier to upgrade a system's
           configuration from earlier systems (as far back as NetBSD 1.5).
   
   20020320:
           <bsd.lib.mk> needs a new install(1) for its "-a cmd" support.
           Build and install at usr.bin/xinstall before the build.
   
   20020319:
           Raw IPv6 socket now makes strict checking for sa_family and sa_len
           on send(2) operation.  Be sure to have sbin/rtsol and usr.sbin/rtsold
           newer than November 2001 when you upgrade the kernel.
   
   20020311:
           ssh configuration files were moved from /etc to /etc/ssh.  Beware
           if you restart your machine from remote.  Note that sshd.conf needs
           to be changed (due to the use of "/etc" inside).
   
   20020223:
           Users of the VAX port will need to rebuild and install gas
           so it deal with the now present register prefix used in all
           the VAX assembly files.
   
   20020118:
           ntpd user/group has been added.  Need to hand add this in or builds
           will break as mtree aborts early.
   
           Add the following into /etc/group:
   
           ntpd:*:15:
   
           and the following to /etc/master.passwd (via vipw):
   
           ntpd:*:15:15::0:0:Ntpd pseudo-user:/var/chroot/ntpd:/sbin/nologin
   
   20011207:
           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)
   
           gnu/lib/libgcc
           gnu/lib/libstdc++
   
           After this a snapshot will be able to be built.
   
 20011201:  20011201:
         In order for a sparc64 build to work you must have a working awk. If          In order for a sparc64 build to work you must have a working awk. If
