Uhm. Withdraw Lattice C support? Surely that must be a very bad idea?
I really don't think GCC is for everyone, and I wouldn't want people
to be stuck with the 16 bit ints and lousy optimization of PureC.

Personally, I might be able to live without Lattice C (which I currently
use quite a lot), but I certainly wouldn't want to!

Are there really many things that need to be changed for compatibility
with Lattice C? I usually try to make my programs compile under GCC,
Lattice C and PureC, and that has seldom been the least bit difficult
(PureC being the one that might require a bit of extra work from time to
