   I can if you are sure you want it.  It will of course break any
   assembly source you have that happens to use / to start comments
   anywhere except the first column.

Please make the change.  There is no really good reason why we should
differ from GNU/Linux in this regard.  And if anything breaks, it will
be fixed.

   I can add that too.  It won't make a difference on most targets.
   eg. tc-i386.h defines LOCAL_LABELS_FB too.

Since it doesn't make a difference, I guess it is just easier to leave
it as it is.

Thank you.
