I have a couple of small suggestions regarding the build of GNUmach2
(oskit-mach). These are just simple stuff that I've found a bit annoying.
My make-fu is too weak [1] for me to present a patch though.

        1. Change the OSKit version dependency in configure.in to,
           at least, NEEDED_OSKIT_VERION=20010214. The changes for
           softint handling by Daniel Wagner [2] pretty much makes it
           impossible to use an OSKit older than 20000901. That's
           when softints was added, iirc.
        2. When I build an optimized kernel, only IDE and one
           ethernet card, e.g., kernel-ide+ethernet_tulip the installed
           kernel is not what I opted for.
           The install_kernel target in the makefile installs kernel,
           not kernel-ide+ethernet_tulip.

I'm not sure what people think about this, maybe you think it's
OK to install the FULL kernel. At least now I have asked.

Best regards
