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

                     10: Note that much of the advice in this UPDATING file was written before
                     11: build.sh existed.  Nevertheless, the advice here may be useful for
                     12: working around specific problems with build.sh.

1.265     aymeric    26:        NetBSD's regexp implementation is now part of libnbcompat.
                     27:        Nblex, nbm4, nbpax, nbsed use it and they may crash on

                     29:        while they included a non-NetBSD regex.h.
                     30:        In any case, you should "make cleandir" at least these tools
                     31:        before updating your toolchain.

                     35:        When doing an update build, make sure to clean the etc/mtree
                     36:        object directory before starting the build - otherwise the
                     37:        needed directories in destdir will not be created.
                     38:        An easy way to do this is:
                     39:           cd src/etc/mtree && $TOOLDIR/bin/nbmake-$arch cleandir

                     52:        sure to build without -u option to build.sh, or manually
                     53:        do a make cleandir in src/tools/lint1 and

                     58:        the openssl libraries will fail. A make cleandir in
                     59:        external/bsd/openssl/lib is needed

                     64:        during a short period of time. To fix, just remove the
                     65:        directory src/external/bsd/ppp/dist/pppd completely
                     66:        and let cvs restore it on next update.

                     70:        and then deleted in the CVS repository.  If you get errors like

                     78:        ARM eABI switched to DWARF based exception handling. This requires
                     79:        rebuilding all C++ code. It is strongly advised to do a clean build.

1.251     martin     81: 20140131:
1.253     joerg      82:        The new compiler_rt/libc integration moved a few things. It is strongly
1.254     skrll      83:        advised to do a clean build. At least lib/libc, the compat version(s)
1.253     joerg      84:        of libc, libkern, rump and the kernels need to be cleaned.
1.251     martin     85:
1.250     christos   86: 20131227:
                     87:        1. The new ntpd runs in a restricted mode to prevent amplification
                     88:           attacks. If you need ntpdc to work you need to explicitly enable
                     89:           mode7 in your config file. Make sure you put the necessary restrict
                     90:           statements to avoid being exposed.
                     91:        2. strncat has moved from lib/libc to common/lib/libc; you might need

                    104:        to IPSEC (and the older IPSEC version removed).

1.246     martin    107:        Previous freetype installations eroneously installed private
                    108:        header files. If you are building against a non-empty $DESTDIR,
                    109:        please remove ${DESTDIR}//usr/X11R7/include/freetype2/freetype/.

                    113:        in the obj tree.  Make sure to ensure any like this:
