I see. From my perspective this means that there's nothing to do at all:
Code caring about cross-target needs to check for the existence of _D_ISxxx
macros anyway because if they don't exsist then the d_type field might not
exist at all. At least that's how I see it...

Just my two cents,

To unsubscribe from the list send mail to with
the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
