  Must admit, I didn't realise that was being maintained again.  Sounds 
as if pretending to be i386 might be the way forward.  That recommends 
i386 for the old via C3.  If you have the time, google might be able to 
provide a better solution for an epia - I imagine you can run i586 
binaries (you are missing the cmov instruction), but I don't know which 
will be faster.
