Betreff: [bf1942] New linkage test binary available


there's a new executable up on called

Please note that it's not a tar archive, just a compressed executable.

If people could test how this binary starts under different versions of
Linux and FreeBSD it would be very helpful for me.

This binary depends only on @@GLIBC_2.2.4 symbols which should make it
work on circa-2000 installations. To accomplish this and still use a
really new standard c++ library I've had to hack how the ctype and locales
are handled in the binary; it's not pretty. :-)

Please give me some test feedback on this, it will really help.
