The real problem for me, is that it looks like this only handles
self-hosting. I want to cross compile, and I want to automate most of
I have been working on patches to Build root to add the kernel, and lilo
(which required dev86, or bin86) and dev86.
On top of this I'll probably do a shell script to start with, then see
where it goes.
