Would this '.incbin' make you worry? Its made me wonder if the .so
files /are/ accidents.

Damn, I think I did a grep for vsyscall_int80 earlier. Anyway, the diff for the Makefile above that looks like it adds "int80" to a list and then builds some libraries. I think this is where the file gets built, but I'll have to check that more thoroughly.

After a bit more digging through make's manual and some grepping I can say with a fair amount of confidence that and are created by arch/x86/ia32/Makefile. Freedom!

Thanks for the help, Karl.
