And it works for me!  I can share ~30% of the subproductions I
generate in jbogenturfahi now, which is a small savings in memory
but a large one in instruction caching.  Since these productions
are referenced everywhere, they get used a lot, and I'm really
happy I'm using the same code to run them whereever they appear.

When I first encountered this problem, I tried using git bisect.  It
was the first time I'd used git bisect.  I had no luck doing so, because
each time I performed the bisect I failed to compile chicken with itself.
It was fun to learn how to do that, I'm sorry this change kept me
from running the experimental branch for so long.  Now I know what
to do, at least.  :-)

I'm also really happy with this one.  It makes my build output much
cleaner, so I can spot legitimate warnings.

It's good to see another Gazette!
