I know I don't use Lattice C.  And I don't care if it avoids Atari's standard
set, if Atari even has a "standard set" for MiNT configurations, as long as it
simplifies configuration and things compile.

I agree with Christian Lynbech's suggestion about putting things in /usr/gnu.
I have already done this with my binaries, but still had to put the includes
and libs in /usr/include & /usr/lib, respectively.  It might even simplify 
upgrades to newer versions, instead of having different install paths which
vary from release to release.
