The PATH is set fine too.
I ran into a similar(-ish) problem this morning trying to do a make installworld from an nfs-mounted filesystem where I had done my buildworld on another machine. What I discovered after much frustration is that installworld invokes make with a complete override of PATH such that it only looks for things in /usr/obj/... and the fact that the ex binary exists in a normal PATH place doesn't help. In my case, I had to mount remote:/usr/obj over the local /usr/obj before doing the make installworld. (This was my first foray into updating binaries on machine A from a build done on machine B. The instructions in the makefile left room for imagination.) I know this isn't a complete answer to your question, just a clue: it's probably looking for /usr/obj/usr/src/bin/ex -- Ian To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
