O.k. did that (and generated a new INDEX file using scrubindex.pl)
However in sysinstall, after selecting the packages and selecting
"Install" it remarks that:

"This is disc 1. Package $package_name is on Disc 0. Would you like to
switch discs now?"

Disk 0?

So I have used scrubindex.pl to generate a INDEX of just our packages,
however, I have to generate a new master INDEX-6 file to account for the
fact that we build our packages w/o x11 support and with GSSAPI. (so
scrubindex.pl can then strip the rest out)

However after a 'make index' things like mtr-nox11 are included into
INDEX-6, but not openssh-gssapi?  The only difference is that the
-gssapi moniker is declared as a GSSAPI_SUFFIX make variable vs. the

I realize the reason that openssh-portable has numerous suffix options;
Is there perhaps a way for 'make index' to honor the GSSAPI_SUFFIX
declaration so it can be included in the INDEX?

Thanks... The base release is done, it's just the pesky frills that take
forever to resolve... :)
