What is ther problem with the makeworld you are having?

And are you really performing 'make world' and not 'make
buildworld' ?

I have several colocated servers and I perform OS upgrades
via a cvsup of the sources.   What are the problems with the
makeing the system.

Since these are production servers I'd almost be
inclined to say to go with the 4.7 pathched release.

I've not moved any to the 4.8 RELEASE yet as it still is a bit
'young' in my opinion.  I do have then on the 4.7's with the
lastest patch level
