I never did get back to the aklug list, did I?  Darn.  Anyway, here's
the summary of my upgrade from 4.10 to 5.3:

Everything looked like it worked (I didn't get the errors that you did
on make buildworld), however the machine started acting flaky within 24
hours after the upgrade.  I can't remember what exactly it was doing,
but I ended up doing a clean install of 5.3.

Hope that helps.
