1) on Solaris 2.4, /usr/ccs/bin/ar doesn't allow embedded archives; eg,
ar: scsh/regexp/libregexp.a is in archive format - embedded archives ...
No big deal, just install GNU's ar, make sure /usr/local/bin/ar is before
/usr/ccs/bin, and all is fine..
This is the scsh-for-manly-men solution.
This assumes that a site has GNU stuff installed (or installed
in usual places). Better to list libregexp.a as a lib (instead of an
object) and make scsh depend on it so it gets made.
This is kinder-and-gentler-scsh solution. Not all of our potential users
have a clue, so we'd like to take care of things for them.
