    Yup, and I can confirm two things:

    - the strings match 100% (well, duh, we already saw that from the binary)
    - it doesn't even have an "errno.h"

    that, together with the timing, pretty much proves that the kernel header
    was indeed just auto-generated from sys_errlist[] of that timeframe, with
    a program very much like the one I already posted.

    Now, the libc file just says

    /* This is a list of all known signal numbers. */

    (which is obviously just a cut-and-paste from siglist.c n the same
    directory). But it shouldn't much matter, since I don't think SCO really
    is going to try to claim copyright ownership of the result of standard C
    library interactions like using "sys_errlist[]".

    (I take that back - _of_course_ they are going to try to claim ownership.
    After all, they already claimed ownership of code I provably wrote).
