Actually, disregard my comment about gcc.  I applied a couple of changes
yesterday.  Please update all of bootstra-pkgsrc, and make sure that you
get rev 1.6 of pkg_install/lib/pen.c (that was the last change I
committed).  Then try again and let me know -- I tested it on Debian and
RH, and it appeared to solve the problems.

I always said there was something fundamentally wrong with the universe.
