                      4: changes that might cause problems in the build process, and a guide for
                      5: what to do if something doesn't work.

                     11: build.sh existed.  Nevertheless, the advice here may be useful for
                     12: working around specific problems with build.sh.

        !            22:        configuration files.  The line "pseudo-device rnd" should be

                     36:        quota2 code and its tests) are updated together with the new lib.

                     48:        the tree to be cleaned.  Best to delete both objdir and
                     49:        DESTDIR before running this update.  So far, only the

                     65:        ordering issues with "make all". It may be necessary to remove
                     66:        the OBJDIR for external/mit/xorg/server/xorg-server/hw/xfree86
                     67:        if your update build fails, as the "Xorg" entry there is now a

                     73:        correctly by build.sh.  Manual builds have to update /usr/share/mk

                     78:        by default. It may be necessary to manually update passwd(5) and
                     79:        group(5) in order to make the program work with existing setups.

1.123     jmc       436:     Use build.sh, but do not use its "expert mode":
1.132     jmmv      437:        This will automatically build the tools in the
1.123     jmc       438:           correct order, and it will keep the tools and the
                    439:           new build products from interfering with the running
                    440:           system.  This will allow you to ignore most of the
                    441:           other advice in this file.
1.2       mrg       442:     Build a new kernel first:
                    443:        This makes sure that any new system calls or features
                    444:           expected by the new userland will be present.  This
                    445:           helps to avoid critical errors when upgrading.
1.1       abs       446:     Use object directories:

                    449:           about one.  It also makes it easier to clean up after
                    450:           a build.  It's also necessary if you want to use the
                    451:           same source tree for multiple machines.
1.123     jmc       452:           To use object directories with build.sh:
                    453:            a) invoke build.sh with the "-M" or "-O" options.

                    464:           To build to a DESTDIR with build.sh, use the "-D" option.
