Yeah, I forgot to mention that one. Why is "-lc" included anyway? I have
never seen a C compiler that "forgot" to link against its own libc.
Moving "-lc" to the end should work as well, I guess.

*cough* _Binary_ edit? You wanna be careful with that. I recall crashing
Solaris 2.4 (okay so it was a looong time ago) with a patched "man" (I
wanted it to call "nroff" with -u1, not -u0).
