More LFS-Alpha bugfixes--aboot patch

Yet another bugfix. Those of us using Alpha boxen with an SRM
boot console are liable to be using aboot (an Alpha equivalent
of LILO/GRUB). Well, aboot-0.9a does not compile against
glibc-2.2.5 without some hacking. In short, it complains about
missing symbols like puts() that normally get defined by
libc.so.6.1. This has to do with the aboot link phase trying to
overload the glibc printf() function with its own printf()
function, and glibc-2.2.5 not playing along nicely.
The attached patch works around the problem, at the expense of
being able to build aboot in "TESTING" mode (a build mode that
seems fairly useless to anyone but the aboot developers). I've
just tested it myself with a floppy disk, and it _seems_ to work
"If a server crashes in a server farm and no one pings it, does
it still cost four figures to fix?"
