:Heh -- very true.  But *should* it be defined somewhere?
:I just grepped thru an old DF install from several months

:So -- what accounts for my sudden problem compiling the

    How odd.  It's got to be that somehow __i386__ wasn't defined
    before, and is now (maybe a compiler or preprocessor change),
    because I don't see a KERNLOAD anywhere in the codebase other
    then in that assert.
