I ended up issuing a cd /usr/src/lib/libc; cd /usr/src/lib/libc; make &&
make install which did the trick - the KDE4 installation was able to
proceed after that. I appreciate your help and will make a note of the
better ways to do what I was after this morning.
I would suppose I should go ahead and kick off a buildworld when the kde
build completes later this evening. Will that necessitate having to
rebuild the ports or would that be possible to put off until a later
time? The system should remain stable correct?
