I checked in a bunch of patches to CVS a day or so
ago.  These were only just little things I noticed while going over the
code trying to understand everything and come to grips with parisc.  I
suspect these fixes won't give you the functional tool chain you need, but
I'm working on it.  Once I've gone over bfd/elf32-hppa.c, I intend to make
everything available via CVS from the puffin machines.  It's taking longer
than I thought it would...

I'm sure I'll do many stupid things :)
