 Subject:  Building a build environment for custom kernel
 Date:  Mon, 12 Sep 2011 12:54:08 -0700
Hey, all.

I've decided to bite the bullet and build a custom kernel to make
better use of the hardware we have.
Setting up a build environment is complicated by the fact that FreeBSD
6.X is relegated to the archive, so... any suggestions would be
appreciated.

I confess that I don't know which 6.X to install, for one thing.  6.1?
 6.2?  6.4?

Assuming I get that right, and all I want to do is tweak the size of
some parameters, I don't think I'll need to recompile anything except
the kernel itself.  I won't have to recompile any modules, right?
