  Howzat going?  I see you've checked some stuff in but I'm still running on
yesterday's CVS.

  Here's a patch that I think should also do the job, against r1.18 of
speclib.  Using the resulting libc.a resolves my ld-bootstrap testcase (also
my gcc bootstrap that was segfaulting in ld when libgcj gets linked with
"-ldl"), so now I'm going to install a full sysroot and try it out for a while.


	* speclib:  Forcibly add idata head, and rename symbols to
	avoid collisions at link time.
