Great, if lwp is now working for you I will release a new source tar.
None of the prebuilt binaries are affected as it is a build problems.

A release is currently nothing more than a snapshot of the current
development tree. The lwp change got committed to the CVS tree in early
december. The code had not seen any important changes, and was for the
most part an almost identical copy of the coda/lib-src/mlwp tree, I
simply assumed it was stable and usable on all platforms by now.

I could try to sync a `release' with others, possibly announce on the
codadev list that I'll freeze/snapshot the tree in a couple of days or

The facilitized machine used for building has 1.3 and I'm not sure
whether facilities has got a NetBSD 1.4 based setup with AFS etc. But
you're right that 1.3 is a bit dated by now. Bob used to do the compiles
for NetBSD and FreeBSD-current on his machines at home.
