Oh for a keyboard which doesn't decide to add spaces into things
(probably, it is flexing slightly) - unfortunately, my PS/2 KVM
switches have their sockets too close together to accepts two
usb->PS/2 adaptors, and all my mice are already usb.  So, re-sending
now that I've got a delivery failure from an extra space in the To:.

Re procps -

I see that we disable the test for pmap because it fails when
running from a script without a tty, but I'm getting the same
failure in pgrep (and also pkill) -

Is this another place where I'm managing to do things differently ?
(only intended differences are dropping unneeded static libs and
using the gold linker).

I tried to apply a similar sed to pgrep, but failed to fix it, so
I'm letting it pass for the moment.
