doesn't need it unless he's not on x86 ....but it looks like
the 2.4.x doesn't use it either. Most of my systems are 2.2.x
and 2.2.x requires it.
I've always needed bin86 to compile. I just recompiled again to be sure
and it is used:
[root@aphro:/usr/src/linux]# grep -i as86 make.log
as86 -0 -a -o bbootsect.o bbootsect.s
as86 -0 -a -o bsetup.o bsetup.s
[root@aphro:/usr/src/linux]# which as86
[root@aphro:/usr/src/linux]# dpkg -S /usr/bin/as86
(kernel 2.2.19 is what I compiled)
