I know the feeling, I haven't been ablt to build world on this slow
machine of mine for ages.  This is why I'm still running on a 5.x
build of late April :-/

% uname -v
FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT #1: Thu Apr 25 01:11:09 EEST 2002

But whatever.  I can still test most of the work I'm doing, being
mostly interested in manpages and SGML docs.  You have a point though,
no objections from here.  CURRENT is approaching the -RELEASE of
November every day, and is still somewhat fragile for me ;)
