the patch does apply cleanly, and builds with far few errors than most
other sane backends, so it is perhaps reasonable to include it. the
only thing i see strange about it, is that it does not use DBG macro
at all. perhaps the backend is perfect, and therefor does not need
debugging output, but our users systems can be messed up in odd ways
which can be quickly solved with a little debugging.

Couriousous- are you up for adding some DBG calls (look at any other
backend for examples)
