        Well looked into it further today.  And it appears the culprit is
of all things, an few #ifndef's eval to -true- even though the functions
are prototyped properly in /stdlib.h!

        Once they eval incorrectly, the game tries to install and use
Jeremy's super duper random functions.

        But yes, I agree George.  Wtf someone would change the lables for
oft used typedef's within the Gnu package I haven't a clue.  I -will- say
that besides not working too well, the new glibc looks alot cleaner.

        In any case, does anyone have a reason -why- a #ifndef statement
would eval incorrectly?  I've not been able to figure this on out.
