The latest net/mtr on 2.0 on ppc dumps core shortly after launching. Since 
optimization seems to be the cause of many new problems on ppc machines, I 
tried compiling it with -O0, and it got farther (started drawing stuff on 
the screen), then segfaulted.

I barely have any time to look into this (off to do lots of election 
related stuff), but here at least is my conusing screen from after it 

                              My traceroute  [v0.65] ( psize=64 bitpatternTue Nov  2 08:54:01 2004

Without the -O0, it just gives a Segmentation fault (core dumped).

Any ideas?
