Actually I'm not quite sure but I noticed that perly.fixer ran whereas
before it didn't.  It assumed that my machine was an Interactive 
UNIX.  I've never went and poked around to see what made it run this time
and not before.  Anyway, it compiled without a hitch.  Optimization was
turned on for ALL files (as was -DDEBUGGING).  The perly.fixer allowed for
dynamic stack allocation in yacc(or something like that, I don't remember what
it said exactly.)
