Ah. My goal is to not have to run another computer to run this service. At 
the space we have a bunch of systems, but the ones that are on all the 
time and serving the internet consist of a NetBSD x86, a VMWare system 
with a bunch of images (mostly linux), and one or two other linux systems.

There is a v100 but people like to play with it, and a few other sparc 
systems. I tested the binary on a Sparcstation 5 that is part of a Cray 

Speaking of which, another post on that.
