   This does work but I'm surprised that the alternative (and for
me the 'normal' syntax) does not.  I'm getting mixed messages on
whether it should or not.  Some documentation suggests that GAS
Uses ".equ symbol,value" normally and "symbol equ value" on hppa
but there is example code out there which uses 'my' syntax.
A goolgle search on "gnu as equ .equ m68k" for example throws up
things like link below:

You can appreciate that I'd rather avoid having thousands more #ifdef's
to keep my code portable (as much as possible for assembly that is).
