Is "objcopy --redefine-syms" any help? Compile the code as-is to
produce object files, use nm or objdump to find all of the global
symbols, generate unique six-character names for them, and then use
objcopy to create new object files with the new names.
Or have I completely missed the point? I'm not familiar with KCC, does
it produce object modules in a format objcopy doesn't support?
I know someone who was working on gcc support for the PDP-10, I wonder
if he's still doing that or has given up....
