In one of the repositories of Infocom game source code recently uploaded 
to Github, there's an executable that appears to have come from an m68k 
Unix machine of some sort.  It's at Over at[1], it was initially claimed to be from a Macintosh.  Then 
I suggested it was from a pre-Sparc Sun machine.  Then someone else 
suggested it was from A/UX.  Does anyone know anything more conclusive?  I 
based my idea on what I got from running strings(1) on the file.
