Help: KCL on SCO Xenix

   If anyone out there has experience in porting KCL to a 16-bit machine,
   please do mail to me. I'm sure Kyoto (or whoever currently maintains and
   distributes KCL) would like to have it available on this level of machine,
   as they are becoming much more popular.

One thing to look out for is the structure definitions in object.h.
The code assumes a certain overlap, so you will probably have to pad
some fields to make them align properly.

I ran into a similar problem on our cray2. It was a nasty problem to
track down.  By the way, I've pretty much given up on the cray 2 port -
the interpreter works just fine, but there's a fatal bug in the
garbage collector that I've not been able to track down.

If anyone is interested in continuing where I left off, just let me know...
