 data + bss < 32K, unfortunately. (Though a little bit of compiler work
would make the 64K.) But I'd take a good look at G-Kermit and see if
anything can be stripped out. It took some work to get telnetd and pppd to
fit, but both of them had enough unnecessary code or over-large buffers
that could be trimmed.
