True, which is why we've been using this technique. I've been relying on the
Mach3.0 source, as that has the most complete support for the various
models. Others have been using OpenBSD/NetBSD/...

I have a valid Ultrix license, and I wasn't proposing copying those files
for use in Linux/MIPS, just getting hold of that which my license allows
anyway (without having to re-install Ultrix!!)
Seriously though, we can't copy these files willy-nilly, and we won't.
The Mach sources allow copying provided the copyright is attributed -
presently I'm mostly using header files and little bits of code.
