I had this itch to change the refs and make it something like you
describe but...I did not want to change the work that Ken did BUT I am
thrilled I have a clean compile, and am building the tops20 sys with TCP
as I type.
I have worked with FreeBSD - cause the Xwindows support seemed so easy,
might have been me. Debian - casue of the CCC capability, Redhat cause
it came with a couple of alphas I picked up and because of the SELinux
capabilities. but I seem to have this bent towards NetBSD. Just seems
natural to me. Considering that I jump from PC to Vax to Alpha as I
play with things, I like the transparance. Now, to have a version of
the 10 that runs cleanly on all three environments is great!!
I will tweak the sources with your suggestion and see what it does for me.
