Actually, I was able to install the packages using a 2.1 kernel if I
fooled the system into thinking that some stuff was already there.
binutils was crashing because /man/man7/undocumented.7.gz was being
pointed at (by gasp.1.gz) and it didn't exist. Placing a file in
/man/man7 called undoc(etc) made dpkg happy.
So now I have binutils, gcc, and cpp installed, just no header files. My
quest now is to find the C headers and install them...
