Oops.  Sounds like I picked up the wrong idea of what was
needed for this.  Sorry if I created more confusion for

I should note that what I actually did was I first did a normal
upgrade to -current as of 11/11, and after that was all done I
did a second upgrade to the up-to-date current.  There was one
problem in that src/sys/boot/i386/boot2/boot2.c needed to be
fixed to build the 11/11 snapshot, but other than that it worked
out fine for me.  My second upgrade would only cover a few days,
so that's why I probably got away with doing things in the wrong
order for that second upgrade...
