All, I updated the build files in corlib, System and System.XML so that you can do 'make test' without a make. Huh? OK, probably most people don't run the unit tests, but I want to encourage everyone to do so. However you get your updates, CVS, snapshots, whatever, in the mcs directory do a 'make clean' and then a 'make test'. You might be surprised to see what the tests reveal. Enjoy, Nick D.
