Unfortunately it is very difficult for most developers to test with
NHC98 because it does not work with any recent version of Linux
(specifically since Linux kernel version 2.6 some years ago) due to the
'high mem' bug.

I admit that I've not tried building NHC98 for a while but I've not
heard that the bug has been fixed.
