Separate root and usr would be good, thanks. Hopefully it shouldn't be
too much effort to get rtld-elf working for alpha later.

Thats odd. I don't have any trouble building it on my Miata under Linux
but I do have a bit more memory (128M). SimOS needs a severe hacking
before it works at all (I have patches if you are interested) and it might
