Thomas,
     To be honest, I didn't delve into the reason why Errno.pm is needed by
the host. Also, the original makefile did not seem to really differentiate
between host and target. It modified the source and built both the host and
target from this one modified set of files. This is why I didn't create a
host build. I realize that 'ext/util/make_ext nonxs Errno MAKE="$(firstword
$(MAKE))" \' builds the host Errno.pm portion, but by that time so much work
has already been done, it seemed wasteful to repeat it for the target. I
couldn't figure out what modifications were only necessary for the host, and
which for the target, or if they were needed for both. I'm open to
suggestions.

Martin
