Sorry, my mistake, I meant to say, "to another in-place with buildworld". I concluded that Zenny had used buildworld to get into his situation, though I don't think that anymore (a separate mistake). Thanks for asking why I made my assertion instead of just saying it was wrong. That's what I like about this list. The reason I assert that buildworld (followed by installworld, of course) will not always take you from -stable to -current is that I recently tried it (building mpfr, mpc, and friends first) but ended up in a very strange place with rpm dependency errors similar to Zenny's. That's why I have been so chatty on the list lately - "false authority syndrome." :) Chris Bopp Honolulu, Hawaii
