Thanks...  I got it to compile (v1.15), but when I run it 
it creates a file size == one erase block.

A quick web search led me to :
running it --version sez 1.7 and it creates the whole 5 meg
but my kernel complains bitterly that the fs is too old.

If I could grab a binary somewhere I could move on.
If no-one can point me to a binary, I guess I'll
be debugging this app on a 2.2 kernel.
(my boss threatens to "just go back to WinCE"!)

Thanks  J
