I tried profiling something, and I got this:
 time   seconds   seconds    calls  ms/call  ms/call  name
 98.19    738.47   738.47                             start
  0.73    743.99     5.52    35877     0.15     0.15  write

On SunOS, this application is about 60% syscalls to write.  What's going
on?  I compiled and linked with -pg, and I do get call listings for
all of my functions...
