To do a valid regression test, you really want to run it on a system
that worked in 2003, so you probably should be compiling it and running
it on Slackware 9.0 or rather than Slackware 10.1, or whatever system
you were using back then.
For example, if you tried to use Wine from a couple of years ago on the
latest Fedora Core, even if you get it to compile, it won't run, because
of problems with exec-shield and who knows what else.
