My changes that should be committed now are.  Attached
is a patch for the Makefile's so we don't use a file list and
work with the old ar command.

The starting stack is CLEARLY at the end of RAM in the
start/start.S and startup/linkcmds.  This is used as
work area so getting clobbered early.

Attached in a private email is my hello if you want to look at
it but we know the stack is broken.
