I thought so, in any case, using __GNU__ is definitely not the Right

Thanks for summing this up very well, you said just about what I was
going to say :)

Now if only VMWare's virtual partition didn't get corrupted half the
time in GNU, or if I could get plex86 to work, or another machine, I
could be sending patches here myself.

Marcus, I saw on the plex86 list that you tried to get gnumach/hurd
booting at some point. How far have you gotten with this?
