:Can anybody confirm that this still works? When I try to upgrade a 
:FreeBSD 4.9 system to DragonFly 1.2 following the procedure outlined in 
:this document, make buildworld fails in /usr/src/usr.bin/mklocale.
:I would like to go this route to migrate some production servers that 
:are currently running FBSD 4.11 to DragonFly, if possible.

    I really doubt that you can build the dragonfly kernel from inside
    FreeBSD any more, short of booting a DragonFly CD in a virtual machine
    and building it there.
