Sorry for the delay.  I thought I would do some clean up before I release
something and then I went ATV riding on Sunday.  But, I bring good news! 
I was able to (magically) compile sysklogd and I cleaned up some build
errors I was receiving with lilo (it's too smart for its own good; it
tries to use /usr/bin/manpath to figure out where to install its manpages
when the fall back /usr/man is good enough and doesn't break on my FC2
box).  Funny, I don't remember making any changes to sysklogd so that is
why I call it magical.  So right now I'm running a 'make bootstrap' and
I'll see where that takes me before I release.

The tar ball I'll produce will be quite big but I don't feel comfortable
putting it up on my personal web server (which is also my personal file
server).  Does anyone have a place I might be able to put it?  The belios
project space maybe?
