I have an idea / a strong suggestion:
Maybe it's that this port seems to "fit" so many different CPUs and 
configurations that every Newbie thinks that he/she could easily copy 
the "right" parts of the code from there; while trying to do so, Mr. or 
Mrs. Newbie get lost in the super-enhanced or just wildly grown and 
tricky FADS code.

I had and will have.

I'll do as I lack other options. I think it's recommended to develop the 
port for "my" hardware based upon 1.1.2? I started when 1.1.1 was the 
latest version.

Thanks a lot and best regards,
