I just nailed this bug: Linux on ARM defaults to unsigned char, and 
Jim's dynamic code assumed signed.

See for 
progress - I'm not sure we have found and fixed all instances of the 
problem yet but latest commit should be a whole lot better.

Note that in a pinch you could simply add -fsigned-char to CFLAGS and be 
done with it, but I consider that cheating. I'd rather find all bad code.
