Paddy's Oasis update to bpl21 reimplemented global bufs because he
didn't feel like updating it that significantly. I just tacked:

   #include "oasis.h"

...onto every DG file that wanted global buffers. The thing to do
would be erradicate any buf, buf1, buf2, arg, et cetera that isn't
absolutely necessary. I also haven't combed back through for format
string vulnerabilities yet. That's in sore need of doing as well.
