Could be. I briefly saw similar behaviour when I mixed an older (local)
wmirc with a recent (global) configuration system. The old wmirc relied
on a number of scripts which don't exist anymore. In the latest snap,
even the frameconfig stuff is now an internal function of wmirc.

BTW, the newest 9base comes with a port of yacc which is used when rc is
build (instead of the standard yacc). But that 9p yacc does not get
installed under /usr/local/9/bin. Is that intentional?

Did you know that if you play a Windows XP cd backwards, you
will hear the voice of Satan?
That's nothing! If you play it forward, it'll install Windows XP.
