Well, hm, but not on POSIX compatible platforms for sure.
MAP_FAILED for example is now explicitly defined (since Issue 6)
where (void*)-1 was formerly used (also by the standard).  There
is also (iconv_t)-1 standardized, where iconv_t is usually
a pointer.  So this ISO C, then.  Hm.  But ok, i can use intptr_t,
it is already used in the lynx code.
Thanks for pointing this out.

He unfortunately seems to leave.  For weeks the server was totally
gone, now at least the name resolves, but i cannot access it
nonetheless.  I really like pcc.
