Well, there is evidently more to it than that since there are all sorts
of missing symbols when you go to link. BTW, I made a simple addition
to the patch so that it will compile under elf or aout by testing for
the define __ELF__.
I'll look around a bit more for where these functions might be hiding.
Thanks for your help.
