	Hmm, my binarys cut from a May 3'rd sup work just fine, no syscall
	table braindamage needed. The routeing/networking stuff is
	broken but non-networking binarys and binarys that don't
	rely on kernel structures, i.e. ps, vmstat, etc. work fine.

	Hmm, what sup date are your binarys from? Mine are from a May 3rd
	vintage although later today they will be May 19th; burning my
	bridges but good so to speak...
