Thanks! I need to skip it and vm-display-Quartz, and now I need to
figure out how to twiddle the word size: "ld: warning: in
/opt/local/lib/libX11.dylib, file was built for i386 which is not the
architecture being linked (x86_64)". that's with "make WIDTH=64" of
course. Anyway, sleep time.

Thanks for the help, Dave.
