NetBSD cryogen 1.6U NetBSD 1.6U (CRYOGEN) #4: Fri Jul 25 19:12:09 CDT 2003  vugdeox@gimp:/sys/arch/i386/compile/CRYOGEN i386
I noticed a few problems while building a custom -current kernel:

- config doesn't notice that 'file-system CODA' needs psuedo-device vcoda and allows you to create a doomed compile tree.

- config doesn't seem to handle the new "bus" interface properly:

For instace, I can enable auich* somewhere and not enable an audio device for it. Config doesn't notice this problem because, audio now attaches to audiobus and there is no direct dependency (am I crazy or does this seem strange?). This is also noticeable in the firewire section except, fwohci doesn't need a fw device to compile.

I can understand this new bus layer but it seems that neither eap or auich will compile without audio and config doesn't seem to know this anymore.

I stupidly trashed the errors but, there were just undefined references (something_attach). They should be easily reproducible.	
try to build a config with eap or auich and no audio device
