[developers] PET 0.99.12 + MRS Build Errors

It appears that the patch I wrote is a partial solution. I can compile
with MRS enabled, but it core dumps when I try to load JACY. I am
giving it a try with ERG and will send a more detailed error report in
just a bit. I tried printing ECL's *features* as you requested. For
some reason, my pentium 3 processor is recognized as :I486. Perhaps
this is contributing to our woes?
