Nope, can't say I do. I want to use pnet as a 64-bit environment, not run it
on a 64-bit CPU. It'd be nice to have access to such hardware, but I don't.

Hmm. Doesn't glibc make a lot of assumptions about running on linux, making
porting it to target IL a royal pain? I'm pretty sure there's other libcs
that would be easier to get compiling under cscc. uClibc, maybe, or netlib.
Have to do some research.

I really don't like the practice of putting braces on separate lines. It's
just so, hmm, ugly and inelegant. But that's what the indent program is for.
