It's not manditory, I am behind a triple T-1 connection working for an
ISP, and sometimes forget about the 56k people (even though that is what I

# rm -rvf /usr/obj
# cd /usr/src
# make buildworld

This will at least verify that something in the obj tree did not get
corrupted on the first pass through.
