7.1-RELEASE-p2

will-try [~] > sysctl compat.linux.osrelease
compat.linux.osrelease: 2.6.16

linux_base-f8-8_10

linproc mounted

OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE=f8 in /etc/make.conf

I didn't follow the directives in UPDATING, as I just recently
reinstalled all ports. Since I had to recompile many of them due to
gnome-2.24 anyway, I took the opportunity get a fresh installation.
However, looking at the entry in UPDATING I see that I have followed
the directives.
