I just used H. J. Liu's patch from tsx-11.mit.edu in GCC/patches.  Let
me know if you need more info.  BTW, shouldn't elvprsv be in
/usr/sbin?  This is definitely not a program used by anyone else
other than root, and it is only used at boot time.

I am using tcp/ip very happily, with 0.99.15.  So the problem has to
be elsewhere.  Any idea about the message from init?
