If this is the biggest thing, maybe you should look at cscope. SCO has
open-sourced it recently on sourceforge. I've used it quite a bit and it's
really _quite_ useful if you're not sure where to find something. Also helps
quite a bit if you're tracking down performance problems so you make sure to
catch all the cases where xyz() is called. :) Check it out...
