Hmm. I didn't need installworld_oldk because everything was local
drives. installworld_newk seemed to work just fine, though I haven't
tried to rebuild post-64btt transition yet.

It was fine for me. :-)

Sounds good to me. I don't see any hints on when 5.3R will be in
the Web files but we'd need a fair chunk of time to get ports built
and tested. Though why commit the change to _types.h after you
commit the other files? I kind of doubt anyone would notice them
in the repo until you make the change to UPDATING.
