Tons of SIGSEGVS in NCSA 1.4 on BSD/OS 2.0

Tons of SIGSEGVS in NCSA 1.4 on BSD/OS 2.0

For the past week or so, I've been getting literally hundreds of these
each day in the error logs here:

[Mon Jun 12 01:20:19 1995] httpd: caught SIGSEGV, dumping core
.,,
[Mon Jun 12 01:34:06 1995] httpd: caught SIGSEGV, dumping core
..
[Mon Jun 12 01:34:08 1995] httpd: caught SIGSEGV, dumping core
...
[Mon Jun 12 01:39:58 1995] httpd: caught SIGSEGV, dumping core
...
[Mon Jun 12 01:39:58 1995] httpd: caught SIGSEGV, dumping core

There's nothing on either side of the error that relates to it (just
can't find so and so, etc.)  The server keeps running, but performance is
down, needless to say.

We're running BSD/OS 2.0 on a 486/66 with 32 megs of RAM.  It's about
the only thing on the machine.  System load is usually low, and there
seems to be a goodly amount of memory free.  The thing was working fine
for about a month after we moved it over from a different machine, it's
just lately that this stuff started cropping up.

If anyone can think of anything, I'd be eternally grateful - well, at
least until the next revision comes out.

1. Errors compiling Wingz 1.4 Add-ins (Linux 1.3.99, GCC 2.6)

I use the Wingz spreadsheet under a SunOs 4.1.3 at work, and am trying
to set up a similar environment on my Linux system.  To do this I need
to compile Wingz external add-ins.

(Nice spreadsheet by the way. See the homepage at:
 http://www.wingz.com/Welcome.html)

The problem is that I am unable to link after compiling.  The add-in
code has no 'main', as it is in a file $WINGZ/lib/libwztools.a.  On
SunOs, doing a:

gcc -O -I$(WINGZ)/include -c TestFunc.c -o TestFunc.o
gcc -O -I$(WINGZ)/include -o great_zot TestFunc.o \
       -L$(WINGZ)/lib -lwztools -lm            

works great, but under Linux the link fails with a message like:

/usr/lib/crt1.o (...) undefined symbol 'main'

'nm' shows 'main' as being defined in $WINGZ/lib/libwztools.a, so
I am at a loss to how to get this to compile.

        Linux Kernel:   1.3.99
        Wingz version:  1.4
        GCC version:    2.6

Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
