I've got a problem with the teTeX-bin package on a pmax.  In
teTeX-1.0/texk/ps2pkm/objects.h there's a

	#define   abort(line)       t1_abort(line)

and then lots of calls to abort("string") in that directory.  Problem
is that on a mips, the va_arg() macro contains a call to the c library
abort() and the C preprocessor barfs because it sees a call to abort
with no arguments.

I think the simplest change is to remove the #define and just call
t1_abort() everywhere (about a dozen files).  Sound ok?
