I know. Both pretending to be worse a compiler than itself :-/ But
this is already managed by the config system, isn't it? Compiler and
platform are dealt with orthogonally.

Yep. How much energy waste. And we don't have a conforming standard
library yet.

Suggestion? :)

I didn't get this. Just to be sure we are on the same wavelength, so
far I've only introduced macros for compilers. Also, I'm just
considering compilers/libraries/platforms which are *already*
supported by the config system.

PS: no hope about having info for Green Hills: I wrote to their
support and they forwarded the mail to an Italian company which
manages user requests; they in turn replied with a copy of a page of
the manual, but when I asked what the *format* for the version number
was they didn't reply anymore. I got the definite impression they
didn't know what they were talking about.
