Thats what I'm embarking on doing, building master from src. but the zip
seems to be a problem, mc is unpacking it and copying to ~/src, doubling
the 180 some megs of the zip, but with mc piping both, its watch paint
dry slow, about 40 kilobytes/sec of 360+ megs of src. So its not yet
done creating a source tree from the zip. About 85% done when I last
took a peek a minute ago.
