Some things I noticed while installing the SNAP release:

/dev entries don't seem to work first time around; I needed to do a MAKEDEV to
get cuaa1 working. This is a problem because you don't have MAKEDEV until you
get the bin distribution, which makes attaining the bin files over a slip
connection very difficult.

XFree86-3.1s installation suggests /dev/mouse or /dev/tty00 as appropriate
mouse devices. Seems reasonable but stock MAKEDEV won't build either device.

aside from that things are getting easier. I really like having the source
distribution broken into several file sets. Does wonders for us slip/ppp folk
with limited network bandwidth.

Thanks for all you efforts.
