Thanks Tim!

Actually the linking is fine.  Its runtime.  sbrk(0) returns a random
address with each startup.  Thankfully setarch is working.  And I feel
it will be supported for a long time, as its required for Fedora's
emacs build too (just checked).

I'm just hoping that people don't start regarding us as 'old', both in
terms of people and code, and therefore assume there is nothing of
value that should be preserved by maintaining backward compatibility. 

Take care,
