I'm trying to compile 21.2-beta of XEmacs on my old and slow Sony
NWS-5000 whose OS is NEWS-OS 4.2.1a+RD based on 4.3BSD.
By some modification of src/m/news-risc.h, only TWO problem
remains. That is,
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Output sections overlap, check -T, -D and -B values (1st)
I think the first one is serious and the other is easy to solve.
Here is Installation.
Gcc is 18.104.22.168 because newer gcc can't be made on this system. I'm
trying it too.

I tried again and failed.
1. HEAD branch (21.1.9?)
2. binutils 2.9.1
3. gcc 2.8.1 (--with-gnu-as --with-gnu-ld and some change to the source)
4. a little change to src/m/news-risc.h and
5. some variable definition in command line (^^;
Temacs dumps core with bus error.
