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