Right, except that 'what' isn't broken.  It is vers.c (and conf/newvers.sh)
that is broken, believing that the two variables will be allocating in 
contiguous memory.

Changing newvers.sh to generate
        char sccs[] = "@(" "#)" "FreeBSD ...";
        char version = "FreeBSD ...";
will make "what" on the kernel work again, at the expense of about 100

The real question is whether the extreme alignment and padding used by EGCS can
be turned off, especially for 486s.
