  Looks like this was fixed in the 940513 changes.

  No, the reference to ttnread is from extraneous code in amiga/ser.c -
the serselect routine is no longer used, so needs to be removed.

  I just compiled the 940513 sources, and after removing serselect
in amiga/ser.c, it linked with no problem and booted up just fine
on my PPI Zeus system.

  I have put the 2.4 version of loadbsd (latest and greatest) on as /tmp/loadbsd-2.4.gz.  [ appears
to be out of disk space.]  This version should be able to detect
the A4000, A3000, and A2000/A500 systems and hopefully any kernels
after 940512 shouldn't need the _a4000_flag and _a3000_flag values
