Please don't make the filenames longer by prepending/appending processor
information. If you make the filenames longer, they won't be unique for the
8+3 convention for DOS. (People do use the GMP packages for DJGPP.) I know
it's a right PITA, but please put the code in a subdirectory with a name
related to the processor instead.

Thanks, bye, Rich =]
