You will have some chance using the "upgrade" script, but 10r0 use
some feature that can produce problems.

Example: now we have only an addon loader;,
are simply symlinks to it.

I intensively used symlinks in this release, because this help me
a lot when transfer material from the developing system (an Ext2fs clone)
to source tree.

For example: I created the dir /setup/opt and moved in it some
command directly related to Setup. Now, /bin/setup is a symlink to

In this way, I transfere all the Setup package with cp -a /setup.

In other words: if you transport the /setup dir and /etc/utils in
your main Linux system, maybe it work without problem.
