Yeah.. I saw that..  I'm just wondering if it can be fixed, rather than "hacked
around"  But if it's a matter of "you just need to code a ton of stuff to make
xemacs aware of netbsd-alpha's unique elf format"  Then thats probably way
outta my leauge, and I'll just have to "CANNOT_DUMP" it and punt.
