Ok, I have two documentation bugs, and one major problem.  First, the bugs:
the old FAQ is still included, and my name is listed in the TEAM file.  The
old FAQ has nothing to say, really, about the new version, and I certainly
should be given no credit for any contribution, as I made none (and, I
suspect, actually detracted from development by lagging so badly).

My major problem is that I cannot get AS to compile at all.  1.7.142 PL 20. 
All the patches applied correctly.  I'm on Deb 2.2.  I didn't install the
.deb AS package (well, ok, I did, but removed it), and I compiled my last
version (.105) without a hitch from source.  I've gcc 2.95.2, 19991103.  Any
suggestions welcome.

Skipping the png errors, I seem to get in trouble here [from the output of
'make > make-error 2>&1'; I've cut it down _a lot_]:
