I changed the header on the assumption that if Siggy has not in fact
claimed these three that he will certainly be motivated to read it and
As far as binary format, ELF, of course. I thought Siggy had just claimed
ncurses, but I hardly pretend to be the most alert person around. Maybe
Ian Murdock knows?
I'd be more than willing to do gcc for an indefinite time span, if that
would free you up for more stuff. My real impetus for all this work,
though, was just to get a working copy of the latest libg++, but that
sort of forces one to get all three working. libc is a real (expletive
