Thanks!  I do have a puzzle for you:  I've been comparing several
OS's and find they are remarkably different WRT stdint.h.
FBSD5 and NetBSD-CURRENT both have stdint.h in /usr/include/sys
and a symlink pointing to it from /usr/include.
OpenBSD-CURRENT (forging orthogonally as usual) has no stdint.h.

DFly has *three* stdint.h's:  /usr/include, /usr/include/sys, and
/usr/include/machine -- all different.
So, why three different stdint.h in DFly?

For the present, I'm just trying to get GRUB to compile, and I can see
that this header is involved somehow.

So, how about you tell us what the actual issue is comlpete with error
That or I'll compile the port myself today. :P
Well, I solved the compilation problem:  I did 'CCVER=gcc34 make' and
I nearly fell off my chair when it worked :o)
The finished grub executable doesn't quite work, unfortunately -- it
doesn't recognize my disks when using the grub interactive shell.  Any
hints would be welcome.
