+ A new implementation of bc and dc has been imorted in r362681. This
+ implementation corrects non-conformant behavior of the previous bc
+ and adds GNU bc compatible options. It offers a number of extensions,
+ is much faster on large values, and has support for message catalogs
+ (a number of languages are already supported, contributions of further
+ languages welcome). The option WITHOUT_GH_BC can be used to build the
+ world with the previous versions of bc and dc.
r362639 changed the internal API used between the NFS kernel modules.
As such, they all need to be rebuilt from sources.
