Thanks Christos!  I like mush a lot, and have not been able to get it
running with the last couple NetBSD releases. 

Could you also post the 7.2.5 sources in your directory?  The
site no longer has it.  The stupid copyright does allow you to restribute
the base.  This will make it easier for users to build mush.
