Hehehehe...believe me, we all have to wait...especially me, compiling on a
UDB (damn good thing I got 128MB RAM now).

Yeah, I noticed the same.  I was shocked to see the lack of replication
from slink to potato.  I guess the scripts are still lousy on master,
though, as far as ports go.

Agreed :-)

I'll repost a hunk of the FAQ that Joel sent me about some glibc 2.1
changes when I finally get the uploads ready.  I also am putting on the
web page within the week, which, if you haven't seen it lately, got a
small organisational facelift.  I also added a new jpg to it which I like
to call "p*ssed off penguin" (hope ya like it...did the modifications
myself). :-)
