Same here on BSDI and IRIX, so far. I won't have a chance to really beat
on it until late tonight, though. I'll try an old UnixWare build then too.

UnixWare is running fine, and works great with this patch. I'll package a
test source set for some UnixWare 2.x people to try. I'll preconfigure it
and leave it version alone. I figure to get reports from two test sites.

IRIX and BSDI have held up to everything I can do to break them wrt this

That leaves, what, everything else? Solaris, SunOS, Linux, FreeBSD, etc. etc.

Should this work on UnixWare 2.x, we can also get rid of the -DUW2 line in
Configuration, unless we still need it for a socket options patch.
