building with SHAREDSTRINGS doesn't build.  There is a twofold problem:

1.  xstr is broken.  It reformats lines from
	# 3 "file" token token token
	#line 3 "file" token token token

    which gcc (version 3.3.x) -E ${COPTS} promptly pukes on.

2.  static char *foo = "some string" gets replaced with
	static char *foo = &xstr[someindex]; something which
	gcc version 3.3.x apparently treats as an illegal construct.

Posted about this a while back and got no response; did it not make it
to the list or is this deemed sufficiently nonessential that it will
be allowed to entropy?
