Dont want to push any pressure on you or anything, but I be keeping my
eyes open for such an event.

Sorry. Line from "Seventh Son" a Willie Dixon tune popularized by Muddy
Waters. Googling for the phrase makes me realize how far on the other

FWIW, I got that backwards. We want "" to point to

Yes, presumably so. __NR_symlink is 83, if we wanted to do this
installer in asm, using system calls. Never tried it, but I imagine it
works "as expected". The more usual way to do an install would be via a
script, but you could do an installer in asm, if you wanted to. I
suppose it wants a cartoon interface. This may be a "gotcha".

In the Fedora distribution, it appears to be called
gtk2-devel-2.10.14-3.fc7, and is described as:

The gtk+-devel package contains the header files and developer
docs for the GTK+ widget toolkit.
