The new cksum port sets a variable HAS_CKSUM, which will be used really soon now in the MirPorts infrastructure to replace all the old cruft (_CKSUM_A, _CKSUM_SIZE, _HASHES). From RSN on, you will either have our current cksum(1) from MirOS #10 or MirPorts, or you won’t, in which case it will only use the “cksum” algorithm of the OS’ own cksum program (which is rather ubiquitous).

We have a new sample file, “portmdoc”, and I’ve converted yet another manpage to be fixed with regards to GNU groff, like I did with mksh(1) after the R33 release. Expect this to continue.

The FSF is now mistaking that lazy moronic finnish student’s excuse for a patch management system for a version control system as well… the config.{guess,sub} files are now in git. Yuck!

Our kernel now should handle signals wrt the extended i386/amd64 ABI fine: thanks to the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD developer Aurelien “aurel32” Jarno, the direction flag (DF) is now cleared on traps.
