In message <9205051557.AA02636@bert.math.rwth-aachen.de> you write:

To prepare the *makefile* for the next release of GAP I would like to
obtain a list of machines on which GAP has been sucessfully compiled.

If you compiled GAP on a machine (or with an operating system or a
compiler) not mentioned in the list 'make' prints, could you please mail
me ('martin@samson.math.rwth-aachen.de') the following information.

manufactor of the computer          (e.g., DEC)
name of the series                  (e.g., DECstation)
name of the model                   (e.g., 5000/120)
operating system                    (e.g., Ultrix)
version of the operating system     (e.g., 4.2)
compiler used                       (e.g., gcc)
version of the compiler used        (e.g., 2.1)
option given to make                (e.g., 'bsd')
special CFLAGS one might use        (e.g., '-Wall -O2')
further comments                    (e.g., 'cc' warns that two functions
                                     in 'system.bsd' cannot be optimized)

Unless you explicitly tell me otherwise I will assume that the model of
the computer, the version of the operating system, and the version of the
compiler do not matter. (In the above example however the version of
'gcc' does matter, because earlier versions did not understand the option

To compile GAP on a Sequent Symmetry running DYNIX, you simply use
the "make bsd" command and it compiles perfectly with no errors and no
