Glad to hear you're feeling better. :) The bad news is that this is a
really terrible time to upgrade to -current. The KSE mark III update
just went in, so things are very unstable right now.

At this point, the only way to build -current on a -stable system is
make buildworld; make buildkernel. Make sure that KERNCONF is defined in
You'll probably want to read -current and cvs-all for a while before
