Having given up on getting the SFS2.0 client running on a 6.5.9 O2
(it currently runs on 6.4), I've managed to get the SFS2.0 stuff
running as a linux client.

It took a little work...  Two of the "run/install" scripts are
missing a "`", linux "sh" caught this, plus I had to slightly
modify the #include sequence in about a half-dozen or so .c
files in the src/rpc directory, all regarding the HAVE_INT_TYPES
case, plus svc.c attempts to directly manipulate "fds_bits",
which is, by posix standards, only to be done with "FD_SET"..

So, I've started a run, will keep cranking up the knobs as far as I can.. :-)

p.s.    neteng seems down, when it comes back, I'll recopy the sfs benchmark
        source and produce a diff/patch for the linux differences.
