ok, found your post in the archives, and it looks like you patched all the same
places i did.  i'm still busy investigating various cross-compilable packages
for other examples to follow.

i'll keep an eye on that.  most of my problems thus far have been with
netdb.h and other uclibc headers declaring things that aren;t actually in the
library, causing autoconf to leave out compat stuff i really do need.

hum...  indeed.  i have some room on the board, maybe i should put some kind of
circuit on there which can generate a reasonable amount of entropy.  time to
hit the library...
