Hi folks,

Maybe someone here knows.  I've got a 32-bit program that has _many_ 32-bit 
dependencies.  I managed to build it and to get it 90% operational on DIGITAL 
UNIX by using the native C compiler and specifying the -taso option.

I'd like to get it to run on NetBSD.  As far as I know, gcc and GNU's ld has 
no such option.  Am I wrong?  If not, is there some way to effectively limit 
pointers to use only the lower 32-bits with the GNU tool chain?
