If my memory serves me right, you have defined the SUB2 wrongly.
The correct definition should be:
    extern void sub2_ (char *s1, char *s2, unsigned l1, unsigned l2);
As I recall the string lengths always come after all the real formal
parameters (not directly after the string pointer).
(I can't check it at the moment so please check it and report back).
