Re: Recompiling the kernel
Hi again, Cyril,
I was able to get the SVN glibc-bsd repository trunk with kfreebsd-6 in it, and it seems to be building OK. I didn't realize that the source was ported to build under GNU utilities. So far, so good. I appreciate you guys pointing me in the right direction.

Sorry I'm coming back to this subject again, but the kfreebsd6-source package doesn't appear to have a "debian" directory under it, so there is no way to use the dpkg-buildpackage scripts with it. I'm going to have to resort to compiling the source code of the actual FreeBSD
6.2 kernel, but I'm not sure where the BSD-aware tools are (I think they're under /usr/lib/freebsd, so I'll give that a try first.)
Is the fact that the kfreebsd-6.2 source package (the package, not the FreeBSD
6.2 source code) is missing the debian directory an oversight, or on purpose?

Using tools like "dpkg-buildpackage" or "debuild" should be sufficient
once you've fetched the debian source package, unpacked it, and possibly
