This works.
The using gas manual (what version I do not know) mentions both .equ & .set
in the list of Assembler directives that 
"are available regardless of the target machine configuration"
So why isn't .equ supported?

This also works.
I have seen this syntax with so called safe register names mentioned
in the manual of another assembler.

Thanks.  I can now see that the dialect does not match that of the code
base I wish to port (including some third party source).  Is there any way
I persuade gas to accept my dialect or must I abandon this endeavor and 
switch to a commercial product (I feel dirty just saying that :-).
