Ian & David,

Thanks a lot for adding this patch to the tree so quickly.
I have several other patches which we rely on to fix various
issues, including:

- building on Solaris
- using sound on Solaris
- setting the X bitmap icon
- pasting from the clipboard
- changing the signal-handling code from signal() to sigaction()

The latter three are useful on both Solaris and Linux.

Would it be possible to get these patches into the tree too?

I've submitted them over the years, but there's been no feedback
whether or not they're the right fixes for these various problems.
