Typo on my part.  In the posting AFIK.

I tried it a few times, though not to say I didn't type it wrong each 
time.   It's late now and that machine is currently off, so will have to 
wait till much later, like late tomorrow.

I can't copy/paste from the FreeBSD machine to this one, and I have no 
idea how to copy paste from the command line/terminal screen, to a 
floppy (or anything else!) but the error was very short, but almost 
literaly "dont know how to build PPSGENERIC"  No other details were 

As to 'cd /usr/src' before issuing the make command, yes, of course I 
did that, but you are right to to ask.

Nite nite.
