Hi Folks,
	I've gotten all the tools together to build a KDE Koffice from a snapshot,
but I'm having trouble with atleast one file: as dumps with signal 11 on

	My environemnt is:
	NetBSD 1.3.1
	as: GNU assembler version 1.92.3, NetBSD $Revision: 1.3 $
	ld: unknown (native to NetBSD 1.3.1).
	corba snapshot of 10/31
	mico 2.2.1
	python 1.5.1
I've tried pulling more recent versions of binutils (e.g. 2.9.1) installing
and using those for as and ld but they give me more problems (something from
as about non relocatable something).

The biggest clue I have is that as chokes because the build requests -fPIC and
-DPIC, without those options the compile and assemby are successful (the above
translates into the -k and -K flags to as).

Has anyone successfully built koffice from source recently under NetBSD?
Any help would be appreciated...
