Get (not
the newer one), this one should work with 1.0. Ungzip, and edit the
diffs throwing out changes you don't want (don't throw out anything 
containing 'grf' in the name..). Then apply. Should fix:
- 32x32 bit sprite
- setting videomode (-mode parameter to Xamiga24)
- enables you to set memory refresh clock for Retina board via config
  option or binpatch

I think there were some changes in adosfs that might require you get a new
sbin/mount_adosfs, since I don't use it, I don't know for sure.
