I've thought, since there doesn't seem to be a working "V6on286", maybe I
should try porting it myself though I'm not very familiar with the Ancient
Unix sources or with the ancient C used. The oldest compiler I've got
that will compile is Turbo C++ 1.01 from 1990 and it's an ANSI C compiler.
(I do think it'll compile late K&R, but there's weirdnesses in the C used
Having an emulator like QEMU handy is a nice plus. I could prolly build
everything onto a 1.44 MB disk image and boot it in emulation. I'm
thinking I'd want to create tools for transferring files into and out of
disk images, and a bootloader to put on the first sector of the disk
(though, 512 bytes is awful small...)
