Right, that all seems sensible as it is.  But "riscos-dist" needs to be
!gcc, so we end up with a packed application.  Equally, so we end up
with an application on the unix filesystem.

How close are we to release - what are you intending to do about my
SharedUnixLibrary module?   This probably ought to be packed up in an
archive suitable for dumping over !System.  i.e a skeleton !System
application for giving to the boot merger.
