Well, ok...the problem's not quite what I thought it was.  I'm
getting the following error message, though:

"Error: macro requires $at register while noat in effect"

This is what's causing it to punt.  Apparently, gcc is
 generating slightly out-of-whack assembly language...

Anyone know how to fix this?  I'm using gcc-2.95.3 to compile
this stuff...using gcc3 is a bit of a non-option.
