I was going to put this into the 1.4 version of the src/UPDATING file -
any objections?

+> Upgrading DragonFly from 1.2 to 1.4.
+---------------------
+
+There are 3 extra steps necessary to upgrade from 1.2 to 1.4.
+
+- If you have a customized kernel configuration file, it will need
+this line:
+
+options COMPAT_DF12
+
+- The default PAM configuration has moved from /etc/pam.conf to /etc/pam.d/.
+Conversion of the existing configuration is performed by commenting out
+any line in /etc/pam.conf that contains "pam_skey.so" and then
+running /etc/pam.d/convert.sh.
+
+- You must reboot the system between the 'make installkernel' and 'make
installworld' steps of the upgrade; the system needs to have a newer
kernel
+running before the new world is installed.

Sounds good, go ahead!

buildkernel warns if this isn't present, fortunately.

Arg. make upgrade should be adjusted to fix this step. I
noticed this just yesterday when I tried a fresh install of X
on a freshly installed-from-CD machine and couldn't login via
xdm.

I will adjust make upgrade to install the pam stuff if it finds
an empty pam.d directory.

installworld will refuse to run if the kernel is too old,
fortunately.
