They should, yes, but I had to fix a few bugs in the HP-UX emulation
code to make it continue to work :-)   Make sure you're Really Current.
(I noticed the HP-UX bugs after I released the snapshot.)

If you have .o files sitting around, yes, you must recompile them.
If you have your own static libraries around, you must recompile them,
as well.  If demand is high enough, I may look at making the linker deal
with useing m68k4k objects in m68k8k executables (actually, I may do
that anyhow; such a modification should be trivial, seeing as how the
run-time linker can do it :-)

Yes.  (That really was the whole point of switching :-)
