trying to aff the AT90USB1297 to ethernut, I found out that only _vect and
no SIG_ are defined. Here the answer from  Joerg Wunsch about that subject:

Yes, it is.

By no means. ;-) 

The old term "signal" and the respective interrupt vector naming
has been deprecated 7 years ago.  The old SIG_* vector names are
only kept for compatibility reasons in those header files where
they did already exist by that time.  All newer header files only
get *_vect style names.

Ethernut should finally catch up.

So if I don't hear any objections, I will replace all AVR  SIG_* vector
references with the *_vect style.
