Got it, updated via CVS again, & I'm watching "make build" thoroughly
trounce my scrollback buffer as I write. Happy, happy, joy, joy!
One last question, or series of questions: the CVS updated source
claims to contain all of the patches from errata, so the BIND patch
should be in there. The Patch Branches page instructions end at "make
build". It seems to me that I should reboot (or HUP _everything_)
after "make build" in order to begin running the new BIND & other
binaries. Is this the case, or am I failing to grasp yet another
basic concept here?
