Hold on a minute here -- are you talking about PCC, or Ritchie's PDP-11
BTW, will the preprocessor from LCC work for you? It may be small
enough to fit into any split I&D PDP-11 since on i386 it's only:
$ size /usr/pkg/libexec/cpp
text data bss dec hex filename
28823 2492 44216 75531 1270b /usr/pkg/libexec/cpp
(I haven't yet tried it with all of NetBSD's user-space headers though! :-)
