ok well... i'll add an "util" directory to the testsuite then that may
keep such target-dependent stuff.

nope... i am using the windoze-compiled binaries .... win98(first ed.)

going to write a testproggy tonite so we can check this :=P

but still, IS printf("_"); expected to output an underscore on the c64
and not a left-arrow ? (left-arrow indicates no charset-translation
basically ;o))

oh yes that was my first thought aswell.... not 100%sure if there
arent tabs, BUT... there was NO whitespace in the output at ALL (i
could interpret errors caused by different tab-alignment i guess) ...
going to re-check that one aswell tonite :o)
