Out of curiosity, I threw it into a copy of my mud.  Following
i3circle.txt it took about 10 or 15 minutes.

What odd parse errors are you getting?  (I hope something like
changing LEVEL_IMMORTAL to LVL_IMMORT isn't what you mean.)

I doubt my copy would help you much.  My mud is not your mud, nor is
anyone else's.  If I give you mine you'd have the same problems.

No need to touch i3.h, i3cfg.h.
The only changes I made in i3.c (except stuff very specific to my mud)

to match how I define it.

add: #define current_time time(0)
at the beginning since it seems to use it to expire something that might
be important.

Since you seem hard pressed to fine one of the ctrl-stripping programs,

personally I'd just download it again though, the zip file's only 68,148
