Actually, the situation is a bit worse than the numbers show, since the
Commodore and Apple targets have interruptor support in the startup code,
which is lacking in the Atari version.

I have no detailed knowledge of the Atari code. A quick look shows that the
startup code initializes conio and file descriptor stuff directly, not using
contructors, which means that the code is always in there, even if conio or
file i/o isn't used. There are also lots of .ifdefs which conditionally
include additional features and - as far as I can see - all of them are
enabled in the Makefile.

Please note that all this is ok with me, I just don't want to have similar
things (and the corresponding code increase) in the non platform specific
