As I remember, from trying to get a 1.3 kernel to compile with debian's
gcc-elf, the Makefiles for the kernel don't seem to be set up in such a
way as to make it easy to redefine and then propogate $(CC) -- which would
seem necessary to use 'gcc -b i486-linuxaout'.
I guess it is worth while to at least find out if 1.2.14 is totally out
of the question --- I seem to remember a few other small bugfixes which
were slated to appear.
