I fear this is a binary file, right?  BTW, we will store the files
with Unix line ending conventions for orthogonality...

Please duplicate the code.  IMHO it is better to have all
system-specific files in one subdir.  You can write a small readme
which explains that the files are just copies from the ansi files.

Is it possible to shorten this dirname to 8 characters?

Similarly, please try to stay within the 8.3 limit (or at least, 8.x).

Your dir structure looks OK.

Yes, yes, yes, yes.  But :-)

I think that you can drop the `mac' postfix/prefix since you put these
file in a subdir called `mac'.
