[TUHS] BSD 4.2 distribution differences

Hello all...

I have a BSD 4.2 distribution that I imaged a few years back. It differs 
from the one in Warren's archives in subtle but significant ways. It 
appears to be a few months earlier than the one at:

http://www.tuhs.org/Archive/Distributions/UCB/4.2BSD/

Case in point, from srcsys.tar:

diff -r ./GENERIC/vers.c 
/home/krewat/archive/unix/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.2BSD/bin/srcsys/GENERIC/vers.c
1c1
< char version[] = "4.2 BSD UNIX #8: Sun Oct 2 12:03:09 PDT 1983\n";
---
 > char version[] = "4.2 BSD UNIX #9: Wed Nov 2 16:00:29 PST 1983\n";

or from src.tar:

diff -r ./bin/mail.c 
/home/krewat/archive/unix/tuhs/4BSD/Distributions/4.2BSD/bin/src/bin/mail.c
2c2
< static char sccsid[] = "@(#)mail.c    4.18 (Berkeley) 9/9/83";
---
 > static char sccsid[] = "@(#)mail.c    4.21 (Berkeley) 11/1/83";
449,454d448
<                       if (strcmp(my_name, "root") &&
<                           strcmp(my_name, "daemon") &&
<                           strcmp(my_name, "network")) {
<                               usage();
<                               done();
<                       }

(was doing a diff -r of the entire tree)

stand (first file on tape) is the same down to the checksum. But the 
checksum for every other file (tape files, not individual files) on the 
tape is different.

Also weird is that on my distribution, these exist:

But in the TUHS version, ./usb/lisp/doc is linked to /usr/doc/lisp - 
which doesn't seem to exist.

These are just examples of what I see and not the only differences.
