The sys.tar.gz that will not have the obj directories,
these were left over from my build, oops :-} !

This I removed before I made the snapshot of sys. I would expect the
release to have this, assuming source is provided for 1.1 and not just 
a binary.

We are missing this in our MAKEDEV file, and so is everone else
except hp300 port. Looking at the hp300 MAKEDEV I see:
rd*) name=rd, blk=2, chr=9

I'll try it and report back, if indeed we don't need amiga specific
kernel support for this.

My 'window' command does use '-----', hmm.
