If anyone is interested, my (slow, 85Mhz SS4 with 32Megs) is currently
in the process of building 2.0_BETA with the cpuflags. (That is,
-mcpu=supersparc)  I expect it to finish (if everything goes well)
sometime tomorrow, I can make the resulting install files availiable, if
anyone wants...

The source is from anoncvs updated monday, possibly tuesday, I think.
Yes, it's been going for 2 days now...
