Wow :)   that was fast :)
Mmmh.  it doesnt dump core so I can attempt to run it under gdb.
or ?    No gdb for parisc ?

I did recompile it ;)   Im working with it in a chrooted environment
and Im toying with creating a RedHat distro for parisc.  Im doing it
mainly to experience the hardships of creating a distro for a new
platform :)    Dependancies are a b**ch :-)
I've got my chrooted env to the point where I can rebuild SRPMS with
rpm but it wont install them.

chrooted# rpm --version
RPM version 4.0.3
rooted# ls -l /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/parisc/
total 116
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        38287 Nov 19 16:27 zlib-1.1.3-24.parisc.rpm
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        71816 Nov 19 16:27 zlib-devel-1.1.3-24.parisc.rpm

rpm still cant install outside the chrooted env. so I guess something is
wrong in rpm..
