Subject: Re: Hello

I've been getting a little impatient waiting to see if anything happens,
so I started going through orc's patch and revising it.

1. It still applies cleanly.

2. __sigsetjmp is only added on x86(_64).
While looking at arm, I noticed that x86/mips gas uses @function while arm
uses %function...is there a reason for this?

3. splice() is added to fcntl.h with _GNU_SOURCE, but needs (s)size_t;
what I did was add
#ifdef _GNU_SOURCE
#define __NEED_size_t
#define __NEED_ssize_t
#endif

above where alltypes.h was included.

Are there any of these that should not be the other way around?
