I'm starting to build to potato disks.
Utilities built almost well, except I have to remove the following lines from

#include <sys/system.h>
#include <sys/io.h>

As far as I can tell, these includes are not useful for compiling bogl.c.
io.h is only required for bogl-vga16 (i386 specific) and sys/system.h is not in
sparc libc6 package (2.1.2-4).

Instead of commenting them out for sparc, I propose to remove these lines from
bogl.c.  Could you try it on other archictectures ?

I'm now trying to make rescue &co images.
I will send you my results as soon as they are available.
I hope I will do some trial this week.
