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." :)
