I changed the end of line 830... and now when I do make:

# make
+for: not found
*** Error code 127

Stop in /usr/src.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src.

So, should this upgrade be this painful? 5.1-RELEASE-p17 isn't _that_ 
old.. I kind of wonder now what's going to happen when I upgrade one of 
my boxes from 4.11-RELEASE to 5.3-RELEASE? :-/

Thanks in advance, everyone,
