Ah -- I understand better now. I'm afraid I've never worked with the source distribution, so I don't have further advice about that. It seems odd, though, that changing rts code would cause problems with wired-in packages. Have you tried just building without any edits and then putting your edits in?

I did give it a try however (repeating step 3 and 4 afterwards), but it did not solve my problem. There is no sync-all script in the source distribution.
