I've been thinking about at least documenting it, as I've documented 
what I was doing while I was doing it. However, I'm not sure how 
foolproof the end result unless if I verify it (I'm not looking 
forward to going through that again). I'm not going to do anything 
until I convert all the XPMs to PNGs, since it's quite a mess to use 
right now.

I can't seem to close any of the root menus (clicking on the 
desktop). In 1.6 running on Sun OS, I know that they had little close 
boxes in the upper right corner. They're not drawing now (I assume 
that's just because they're XPMs), but I can't click that area to get 
rid of them either.

There are about 3 or 4 other sources that include malloc.h, in 
addition to I listed most of them. Right now my machine's 
booted into Mac OS and I can't mount the MOSXS UFS partition to check 
the list, so I'll have to post that later.

I also had to edit at least one of the sources, I think asjpeg.c, to 
change the METHODEF(void) to just void. I had to do that with 1.6 
when building on Sun OS too.
