Thanks, I have two questions:

Why does VPATH in serverboot not work?

And what is the purpose of the change in utils/Makefile?
The variable should be evaluated when ping is built, so
I don't see why the old code shouldn't work.

We have VPATH += $(srcdir)/../exec.  VPATH catches $(srcdir)/../exec/exec.o 
before trying to build ./exec.o because `exec' directory is built before 
`serverboot' directory.  When $(srcdir) != . this doesn't arise.

Read http://www.paulandlesley.org/gmake/vpath.html

This is something I found after reading your question.  So the line `vpath 
exec.c $(srcdir)' and its comment seem useless.

About utils/Makefile: you are correct.  When I was making the patch I did this 
part rather mechanically.

About the rcptrace.c ChangeLog entry: Savannah trimmed my spaces.

Ah, I see now.  The VPATH directive is too greedy.

I applied everything but the change to utils and the vpath for exec.c.

Thanks a lot for your patch,
