I tried the package out on my old lfs-2.2 based system and the only
problem I had was having to comment out the mkdtemp because of the old
library version and having to manualy install the man page.  Nice and
small too  :)

I know humility is a good thing, but James, you should at least mention
that you wrote the utility in the man page ;)

Anyone else try this?

I, too, was at first mesmerized by the very real 'global' nature of the
internet.  I can assure you the fascination will pass.  Be patient."
