Cool. That's two versions ahead of the last ones uploaded to fnet! I
look forward to them being made available! I'm hoping that now the
Acer is up, I can get the Deskstation stuff I did for 1.2 into 1.3. I
never could get a good tree to diff against for reasons I still don't
fully understand, so I'm just going to do it over again.

Alas, my machine is only a 100MHz box :-(. I guess I'll have to
settle for speed that is just a little better than intel's P5@100MHz.
If I don't miss my guess, that means that my numbers should be about
496 for the time, and about 201575 per second, which is still a little
faster than your P5 :-).

Cool. Any idea when this stuff will be uploaded?
Also, where are the archives for this list. I can't seem to find them
on fnet.fr, but I've not looked in the private directory. Likely the
location of the archive is in the archive :-(.
The reason I want to look in the archive, is that I'd like to know
what the needed versions of everything is wrt to the tool chain. I
think I need to rebuild my toolchain to make this all work (I have a
post 2.7.0, pre 2.7.1 snapshot right now), but couldn't find the mail
I wished I'd saved so went looking for the archives that aren't
