I was at step 3 of installing the 64-bit time_t system. This is being 
built on a kernel compiled with step pre-2. i.e. the new kernel source 
but with time_t still set to __int32_t.

I believe this may have been the case due to a mistaken reboot on to the 
64-bTT kernel image prior to successful compilation of the 64-bTT 
userland binaries.

Whatever the reason, it's down to user error. I've bounced on to the 
32-bTT kernel and things are progressing once again (thanks to kernel.old).
