Uh oh... I've got to hide... fast!

Ok. Let me get this... RH is compiling their libc with a broken compiler
(yes, it's broken!) that makes a symbol (__register_frame_info) that's not
intended to be there be there? And Netscape uses RH to compile its stuff?

Sparc ppl, do you have any reference as to why did Ultralinux do this? Is
RH-i386 5.2 doing this too? Are they using egcs to compile the distribution

Can we *please* get in touch with s/o at Netscape *and* RH to get this fixed

Nice meeting you guys, I'm dead.
