This implementation of the Unix write program adds many nice features
while remaining close to the standard Unix program in spirit. It has been
heavily used on M-Net since 1985 and on Grex since 1991, as well as a few
other systems. It is a ground-up reimplementation using no proprietary
code. It's available under a Berkeley-style license (no charge, no
restriction on commercial use, just don't take my name off of it). The
current version is fairly portable. 

Orville write was written for use on M-Net and Grex, both public access
unix systems in Ann Arbor. As such, many of the features are designed to
support a system featuring a delicate mix of novice users and hostile
pranksters, plus a lot of people who just want to talk. It's user
interface is pretty much identical to the normal write program, but it
offers many extensions and improvements.

Before committing the previous BROKEN changes I carefully checked the status
of each port on bento and for recent fixes.  Unfortunately at some point I
got confused and switched to the wrong list :-)  As a result I picked up a
number of ports that were fixed a while ago.  Sorry for the false alarm,
maintainers.

$(INSTALL) already includes the -o/-g flags.  Use them correctly and   _not_ an
empty $(groupid) variable the Makefile uses.
