Aside from the fact that the 2.2.19 Mac 68k kernel needs the MACE
ethernet option enabled, is there any way to take the unstable packages
and produce stable packages without recompiling the kernels? Or can
someone rebuild them? I'd really like to be able to put 2.2.19 on the
boot floppies. And I can probably only manage to build a single kernel
before tonight.


Sunday morning is every day for all I care...  and I'm not scared.
