"portable" is good, but as I remember, there is some caution
about converting the files because Macs use a different convention
for marking End-of-lines. - There can be related problems in
moving files on or off of Unix systems, and also from the Digital VAX
system that I still use. For instance, an "image"-mode of FTP-ing
from Vax will result in a file on the PC that consists of one "line";
the Vax has *no* internal <CR><LF> in use.
Maybe this clue will help you look at some documentation.

You didn't throw away your original syntax files, did you?
or else the logs of those runs? Or you can Display
what is there, to be included.
