You commented it out?  Aaahhh.. that was definitely the wrong thing to do.
The reference is in the middle of the syscall table, so all subsequent
syscalls were misnumbered.

I've changed it to call sys_brk instead; I'm not quite sure why I had
thought it would need to call a different function, brk looks identical
to me on both OSes.

If someone would be generous enough to test the current CVS tree for me,
I'd be grateful.  It may well be that sash is now able to perform `-ls'.
