 * For every section the user mentions in the assembley program, we make one
 * struct frchain.  Each section has exactly one struct frchain and vice versa.
 * Struct frchain's are forward chained (in ascending order of section number).
 * The chain runs through frch_next of each section. 
 * From each struct frchain dangles a chain of struct frags.  The frags
 * represent code fragments, for that section, forward chained.

struct frchain {			/* control building of a frag chain */
    struct frag	    *frch_root;		/* 1st struct frag in chain, or NULL */
    struct frag     *frch_last;		/* last struct frag in chain, or NULL */
    struct frchain  *frch_next;		/* next in chain of struct frchain-s */
