Right.  feature based.  Finally an opportunity to make myself get
better and hopefully quicker at doing things right.   I regret all
the now stale open source patches never submitted because I never
got back to doing them right.

And thanks for noticing the other glitches I had not included
in my submission - I thought I had added memmove.c to COMPAT
but had looked right at dtimep.lex and missed it -- I had
even hand executed that Makefile line while checking for
sources of realloc usage which might be problematic for
SunoS4.1.4.   Nice to have an extra pair of eyes :)
