I don't know if there is a skip instruction in Mach-O Format. I'll try
to fix this.

Hum... If my memory is well I do use PPC_SYM in order to convert
delay_imports to _delay_imports on darwin target. the assembler syntax
requires it.

If you want, but for me it seems that it is clearer this way. because
you endup with things like:
fprintf((output," \"li " PPC_REG(1) ", 0\\n\"\n");
fprintf(outfile, "\t\"\\tlis " PC_REG(9)
PPC_LOW(delay_imports+%d,9)\\n\"\n", pos);
But in fact it is also readable. If you prefer this way I'll do what
you like ;)

Thanks,

Pierre
