Wheeee! :-)

There are some regression with signals and threads, but mlton can at
least rebuild itself now. The 'real' test also has regressions b/c the
result differs after about the 10th digit; is this ok?

I've switched everything over to C99 (runtime, bytecode, c-codegen, 
and constants). I had to tweak the assembler codegen a bit too ('#' is 
not a valid comment with gcc -std=c99). The only parisc specific code in 
MLton is the datatype = HPPA, everything else is just C99 portable.

Oh yeah, I turned off the profiling stuff; I have no idea what the EIP
register is even called on hppa. The 'gregs' array doesn't exist here.

Anyways, things are working out pretty fine.
I'll mail the patch once I've gotten the regressions fixed and ported
it to a few more platforms. Then we can dupload a bootstrap. =)
