I have an extremely vague memory I might have seen it eons upon
eons ago but I might be imaginging it.

Hmmm, '?' is "ed"s error indication. I wonder if the '?' is
coming out of ed and not SIMH?

Not at this stage of the build - a config file error wouldn't allow
the first few compiles to succeed and then start causing errors
One thing I did notice though was the use of 'ed' - that tells me
the patchlevel of the system is very low (i.e. old). 'ed' was
replaced with 'sed' which sped things up a _lot_ - and that took
place back around #325 in 1996.
Have you tried P11 instead of SIMH? When I'm too lazy to fire up
the 11/73 I use P11 to do the testing/patching and so on. It's a
bit a pain to configure (really arcane configfile syntax) but it works
very well - never had a problem with it.
