We'll see what happens as these puppies grow.  Only problem I've noticed
so far is that cnfsstat -a wants to read the entire cycbuf.  

We'll see what happens when they roll past the 2gig mark, but innfeed/nnrpd
grephistory/sm are all happy.

Guess it's about time to change configure to detect a recent linux 
kernel (and glibc)
