Tried this:
(defconst my-c++-style
    (c-offsets-alist . ((access-label . -)))
;(c-add-style "PERSONAL" my-c++-style)

(defun my-c-mode-common-hook ()
  ;; my customizations for all of c-mode and related modes
  (setq c-basic-offset 3)
  (setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil) ; Use spaces, not tabs, for
  (delete-selection-mode 1) ; Maybe on by default on windows and off by
default on solaris?
(add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook 'my-c-mode-common-hook)

(defun my-cpp-mode-hook ()
  (c-set-style "ellemtel")
(add-hook 'c++-mode-hook 'my-cpp-mode-hook)

However, it doesn't like c-add-style:
c-add-style: Wrong type argument: listp, "ellemtel"
and thus I cannot test it in c-set-style

Any ideas?
