Thanks, Alan, that's about where I thought I might need to go to solve
this. One (me) gets too complacent when one is forced to work with the
"mainstream" processors these days... :-\

I plunked a few more of Sergey's patches in there as well, and it
looks like the both builds have been (mostly) successful - got a
couple of errors when building modules that I'll have to look at

Now for testing... :-)

Cross fingers...
