Could's certainly worth a try.

Okkay...anyone who would like to try it can get it from my web page: is the MOP-format version, is the binary version.

The (not-cleaned-up-yet) source files are: is the driver source, is the SGEC header file, is the diff -u of the changes
I've made so far to conf.c, autoconf.c, and consio.c. Note that one change
really belongs in vaxstand.h, but I don't have access to that on Arno's box.

This is still very much a work in progress...comments and suggestions are
greatly appreciated, but don't consider this to be a version suitable for
more than tinkering.

It only works in promiscuous mode, at the moment. When I try to tell it to
run in normal filtered mode, it sees nothing...nothing...

Let me know what comes of your playing with it. Also, Ragge, if you'll take
a look at it and let me know where I'm straying from The NetBSD Way, I'll
take heed...
