Scratch that last part - I was looking in the wrong place. And scratch
the first two lines, too - it looks like these require the build
infrastructure to a bigger degree than I would have guessed five minutes
ago (their own Makefiles and such)...
I have reservations against maintaining what is essentially a
specialized branch of "make upgrade" because, frankly, I barely have
time for the installer itself. The more integrated it can be, the
Would it be possible to just bring the "etc-termcap" and "etc-rmt"
targets into the same Makefile as "make upgrade", for example? They
seem trivial. The eventual goal to be to make /usr/src/etc/Makefile
more-or-less self-contained, and install it onto release images.
I'll have to think about this and get back to you on it.
