I see that mps_find_icon_number_from_desc() is returning 8255
(geocache). However, MapSource 4.17 lists it as an "Exit" (for a test,
i hard set to 8256 which results in a flag). I suspect they've moved
things around (again). Does anyone know how Sigurd (his URL noted in
comments in mapsource.c as source for lookup tables) is tearing the
symbol numbers out of MapSource?
I may try to e-mail him directly. If the info is in Mapsource binary
itself, I'll write something to parse them out and create a new lookup

There is the 'deficon' option, but it's not implemented for all output
formats. Implementing it is usually pretty trivial; the only hard part
is deciding when to let the code go with the icon types it can divine
and when to override it.
Glancing at mapsource.c, it looks like mps_find_icon_number_from_desc is
the place to focus.

Only within the last few days was the code added to read the icon types
read from geo files. Since it was always "geocache" I just never saw
