   |  Ew.
 Yes, but mostly, it works...
   |  I might be able to find one - I have some obsolete linux boxes around.
   |  What glibc version is it? Linux notions of compatibility being what
   |  they are, it's probably best to get one the same...

 That's what pkgsrc will be installing (from my distfiles directory).
 These are i586 versions, I assume the one that matters is the 2.3.5-40 thing.

   |  kernel. It shouldn't be either difficult or particularly bloaty...
 Just making uname (and sysctl) do the right thing - perhaps - getting it
 inherited down the tree correctly, trickier (there may be, and I have had
 in the past) several different sets of processes running using likver with
 different version settings.

 Now that is just brilliant!   I'll give it a try as soon as I can,
 and see what happens.   Thanks.
