The few lines presented in this thread (the ctfmerge) should not be a  
problem, but the big patch I did resulted in comments that the ctf*  
stuff is not printed, that there are things regarding config which  
should be done differently (Warner has put them on his TODO list, as  
this is a generic problem and not directly related to my changes). For  
-current it was not a problem, and the changes during the pid-provider  
work included a little rework of the Makefile related stuff (as you  
may know). So just MFCing my changes is IMHO not enough.
