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.
