Hi Jan,

Noted, will do from here on.

Have to say I'm not a fan of moving rpcemu to a different lib for just 
linux, not without some wrapper so it's easy to swap out 
graphics/sound/windows lib/libs. ( I have a hate of platform ifdefs from my 
time at Criterion. ;-)  Few to none needed with RW3 when all was good, loads 
needed in RW4 where it all went wrong).
