I mean to be exactly symetric, REGFIX should always be defined.

in enc-option.patch-to-7.5 :
+if enc_option then
+ dump_things(xord, 256);
+ dump_things(xchr, 256);
+ dump_things(xprn, 256);
+ dump_things(mubyte_read, 256);
+ dump_things(mubyte_write, 256);
+ dump_things(mubyte_cswrite, 128);
+ print (" encTeX data dumped");
If you dump a boolean using dump_int, it will be cast to an int. If you
undump it without REGFIX defined, then it will be undumped as a boolean,
at least on my machine/compiler.
