Since at least of you seem so (morbidly?) interested...  :-)

This is in progress on beast at the moment, dunno if it'll work out
yet but ...

	- copied /sbin/init.bak to /sbin/init
	- created /h/kensmith (after cleaning the crash dumps out
	  of /h/crash...)
	- copied the base directory for 5.2.1 from ftp-master,
	  unpacked it in /h/kensmith
	- copied /usr/src from beast to /h/kensmith/usr/src
	- backed out latest change to crt1.c as suggested
	- chroot to /h/kensmith
	- mount -t devfs devfs /dev
	- cd usr/src
	- make buildworld

If that succeeds I'll arrange for the results to look like beast's
real /usr/obj, copy the make executable from /h/kensmith/usr/bin
to /usr/bin, and give 'make installworld' in beast's /usr/src a try.

Thoughts?  Bets?  More sympathies?
