The reason I wanted the previous names was that, unlike with many
other files whose names clash after truncation to 8+3, these files
will be used in building the DJGPP port.  While renaming files via
fnchange.lst might be okay for files that don't go into the build, it
is a PITA for files which do get compiled and linked, because the
Makefile's need to be edited as well.
