    Subjectupgrading is hell
    I just decided to take the plunge and upgrade to the latest pre2.0 linux
    (I'm a late adopter).

    So I went to the kernel victims page and picked up all the stuff I
    thought I'd need, like libc 4.7.6, and ppp-2.2.0f, and procps-0.99a, and
    so on, since I've seen enough people whining about this and that
    breaking and figured I'd try to avoid all that.

    So first I upgraded to libc 4.7.6, then I tried to compile pre2.0.9.

    I got almost all the way through the kernel build, then I got to
    building arch/i386/tools/build, and it failed to link saying "undefined
    symbol stat".

    I find that using libc 4.7.6 I can't compile anything that has stat() in
    it; stat() apparently isn't in libc 4.7.6. I got pre2.0.9 to compile
    by changing stat() to __stat() in build.c, but I can't compile much of
    anything else without stat().

    What did I do wrong?
