I'm still trying to debug raidtools on the Alpha.  I believe the source of
the problem is a bug in glibc's lseek() function, but I'm not positive on
that.  It seems to bomb out when calling lseek() (the function returns
with an error condition).  I'm looking into the possibility of a kernel
problem as well, but not sure there either).

If you can, see what you can find out.  I'll take another look at the
latest source to see if it's the same problem that I was having with the
prior versions.
