   I hit those build issues over the past week, well before I installed the
multilib paackages yesterday. I installed the latter only to enable running
adobe-reader (and, perhaps, jpilot), taking a break from the more important
packages that wouldn't build.

   The BIOS version is no older than a year ago; I'd need to check it again
but when installed I recall seeing the version data as earlier this year or
late last autumn.
