Right, they use MACRO and LINK-20.

Actually, for me it all stared with hacking binutils.  I was adding
PDP-10 support to the opcodes subdirectory (responsible for assembly
and disassembly of individual instructions), when I sent an email to
XKL asking for details about their processor.  Then I got distracted
by the GCC port. :)

It seems they want me to start porting GNU libc next.  After that,
maybe GDB, which has some significant portions in common with binutils.
