Well, in that case....going through the dxd9_36.spec I don't see "D3DXColorAdd" or "D3DXColorLerp", so does that mean it should be added?

Goto d3dx9math.h and add "D3DXCOLOR* WINAPI D3DXColorAdd(
  D3DXCOLOR * pOut,


And is the .spec automatically generated or should I add: @ stub D3DXColorAdd ..." to the file as well?

Once this is made clear, I'm good to go.
