When I last looked at sup it's code was horribly un-ANSI C and
used ALOT of BSD only assumptions. This is why SVRx systems like
Solaris, HP-UX, AIX and probably Linux might be a pain in the butt
to port it to.
Has anybody ANSI/POSIXified the sup source? Maybe we could get it
in to the othersrc tree to replace the older code?
