Does this mean that the `print' problem also goes away in the 6.5.15
build?

If not, what does ``dumping doesn't work'' mean, exactly?  Does the
dumped Emacs crash?

Finally, does Emacs 21.1 ``work'' (in the same sense) when built on
the machine with newer OS?

Btw, the NFS-related problems were not spotted on Irix.  Most of the
reports came from GNU/Linux machines (which also use unexelf).

Sure, as soon as I figure out what is it that we want to say ;-)
