Unfortunately I have to do without info. I also have to do without apt-get; I have only PowerMacs (eg. no intel).
...But regarding register equates...
On AVR, try...
...and you will see it does not work.
You can also try...
...This won't work either.
But try the same with...
rColor req r17
rHasToWork req r22
...and see if it does.
In other words: *ANY* equate that starts with lowercase 'r' would not work for me, when I wrote some assembly-code for AVR.
I ended up using the preprocessor #define instead (but I prefer to avoid the preprocessor now).
