Subjectalpha 2.4.13: fix taso osf emulation
Required to get a dynamicly linked osf taso application working.
Like netscape. Which unfortunately still works better than mozilla
for many things.

Thoughts on changing all ports such that a mmap with a non-zero,
non-MAP_FIXED address starts the vma search at that address,
rather than looking for that exact address then checking the
regular unmapped base?
