Hmm, with line endings converted it's:
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Kein      9630656 Nov 27 18:13 br1.c
It's not exactly the same.
The definition of the array starts in line 31, the closing brace is in line
Total number of lines here: 185241. This shouldn't change from system to
system, should it?

It should just be a quick file check, or more?

And more user friendly if you take it out. Could you do so? I think the
routines for loading exist already?
Until now I regularly fetched Oystein's binaries. But at home I only have a
slow modem connection. It _does_ make a difference if I have to get 1MB or
2.5 MB.
For me I could switch to CVS and build it myself, now that I know how to do
it. But there are certainly others who don't want to or don't know.
