In this case there should not be any problem. If /minus is defined in ISOLatin1Encoding then by default /minus will be used. If someone (like me) wants to have something else instead of /minus then one have to change encoding and install it with ps.options(encoding=...). I just do not want to be forced to use /minus then I do not want it.

< if(c == 45) strcpy(dest, "/minus"); else strcpy(dest, state->p0);

 >       strcpy(dest, state->p0);
