OK, thanks for this info, guess I just misunderstood something from the
man page. I'll try to install the bootstrap, then...
However, I've ran into quite a lot of compiling problems. I realise now
that the proper way of installing pine is through sh build neb, but the
script still seems to freeze at some point. And when I tried to run a
make on ircII-EPIC3.003 (after sh configure), I got this:
Kernel stack (00C29AB6):
panic: Illegal instruction
Stopped at -Debugger +0x6: nnlk a6
could this be because of the FPU emulation not being stable?
