The lack of response you are experiencing is due to the status of the project
at this point.  We are not going to use pistachio, so I don't think anyone of
us is actually doing things with it.

I'm not sure if it's useful to play around with it anyway.  It probably is at
least useful to read the specification, to get a feeling for how microkernels
work.  Don't get lost in details though, pistachio does not provide the
security we want (well, it could with redirectors, but that'd probably kill

Hmm, I remember that the L4 include files were needed in the include path or
something, but I think that was only for building the Hurd servers, not the
kernel itself.  Not sure though.  Doesn't it complain about missing include
files?  You could also try to use gcc 2.95.  Later versions are a lot stricter
on some things, and the code is quite old.
