Well, "forced" is not the word. You know that Johan wanted to do this,
because he wants to be able to cross-compile fVDI ... He has done it
also because he wanted to do it for a long time ;)

Well, you know that it is not the first time that I compile fVDI ...
I have my practices with Pure C ... And it has been the only way for
me since then ... Also, the problem with GCC suite is that Johan used
sed, which is not my cup of tea ... I rather like GCC, but when you
need sed, bison, lex, yacc or other swiss knives to build a program,
it becomes rather annoying for me ... On a well configured system it
would be rather transparent, but on my ATARI machines, it becomes
a nightmare ! I must install those tools, and it is boring :(

I could cross-compile, like most of other peoples, but I don't like
it ... Really ... Will ATARI platform will really become "virtual" ?
