Oh... thanks. Then I probably was lucky since I did several
kernel-builds without doing a buildworld before.

BTW: I did a cvsup to RELENG_4_6 ... and got to the conclusion that
RELENG_4_6_2_RELEASE is a much better idea. Am I right?

In between I did an error and tried to cvsup RELENG_4_6_2-RELEASE (type)
- ended in the error  "unknown option "MAXUSERS"" - not caring if there
was a "maxusers" in the kernel config or not. Strange :-)
