iBCS is distributed separately from the kernel. It *only* builds
as a module. It has not been possible to compile it in to the
kernel for several years now.

It would :-). You need to get the latest ibcs-2.0-*.tgz from and compile it against
the kernel you want to use.

There is now an ibcs-2.1-*-ALPHA.tgz there as well for 2.1.x
kernels (where x should be around 107 or greater) if anyone wants
to try it.
