Prior to today, the 9ficl repo was composed of the import of a tarball, with a couple of patch commits on top.
This has been changed significantly. The repo is now based off the full history of the ficl project, converted from the original CVS repository, with a more complete patch on top. There is no common history with the old repo, you’ll be better off removing any local copies of the repo, and cloning afresh.
This patchset builds more of the ficl system, and fixes output from the VM, ensuring that the output buffer actually gets flushed.
