Hi, Bill.
Thanks for the tips on the compilation control flags, I'll give them a
go, and see what happens. I usually stick with whatever default
optimisations a "./configure" run would utilise, so I'm unaware of
anything that could adversely affect compilation.

As for the source code itself, my C knowledge isn't all that great, so
I have no idea about where I should begin, as far as fixing the
defective code goes.
