sun and cc

There is a problem with the unbundled sun C compiler.

When it compiles the file format.c, it makes a rather large .o
file and also introduces a bug.

One manifestation of this is that when one goes to compile a file
the string passed to 'system' is missing its final ')' and so causes
an error:

    ;; Note: Tail-recursive call of FOO was replaced by iteration.
    End of Pass 2.  sh: syntax error at line 1: `end of file' unexpected

I dont know if there are other bugs with the unbundled sun c compiler or not.
For the moment I would have to recommend using either the bundled (free) one,
or else using gcc 2.2.   Both of those work.
