Thanks.  I don't have an actual linux machine myself at the moment -  
I'm just working off vmware.

Preliminary play with the latest Ubuntu seems to get most of the way  
(once various libraries have been included).  I can get it to more or  
less work up to the final link stage before ld crashes.

One problem I'm not sure how to get around is that Self seems to want  
to use termcap rather than ncurses which isn't supported on debian  
based systems.

I'll play some more and see if I get anywhere.
