Ah, great! Looks like I misunderstood the agefile option.
Perhaps someone should add a note to the man page, probably I am not the only
one suffering this problem.
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
