I apologize for that casual and premature statement--it was certainly
not meant as an affront or criticism of your program.

I am glad that Marc pointed out the Solaris problem (and the
possibility of others of this kind with other programs and glibc), and
I am sure there will be a solution soon.   In the meantime, I'm going
to try to pass to the compiler "-D_SYS_REGSET_H" to see if that works
by preventing the use of <sys/regset.h>, the offending header.
