You are very knowlegeable but I agree. You did not explain
the message. The information above is much closer to an
answer and what I and others would have wanted.
PS. I am currently trying to back port 15b to LATTICE,
(because I cannot get GCC to run on my system. )
I have 4 other versions of mint. So I can compare
the build. Syntax is genuinely eccentric.
LATTICE is stable if gnarly. Since I am limited
to TOS (1.4) I must bootstrap the system. So I cannot
expect SED or INSTALL or BUILD to work, much less GCC.
So I must puzzle out the errors and try to resolve
symbols with LATTICE. I really dont think anyone
else really cares. But my system is very small.
And I need to make things work. I know how to do that.
But any help would be appreciated.
