I have submitted a couple of patches in the project "bugs" section so
far, but forgot to reference nmh-1.3-RC1 in the title of the second
submission.  That one restores the ability to build outside the
"top src" directory, along with restoring the automatic substitutions
for missing library functions.

Thanks for those patches -- I've now applied them (more or less)
and they should be in the next RC (which I might do this evening,
unless anybody suddenly leaps up with new stuff to put in it).

I have more build and runtime patches for SunOS - but currently
they are all SunOS4.1.4 specific hacks as in:

#if defined(sun) && !defined(__svr4__) && !defined(__SVR4)

Seems like making these general enough for submission would require
adding new specific tests to configure.in along with macro definitions.

Yes, that would be the way to go -- new macros ought to be feature-based,
not platform-based. (Or, as with the realloc issue you mention, the code
should just be written for the lowest common denominator).
