[sdiy] How automatic is the DSP on the dsPIC33f??

Lets say I program something in the C30 compiler for Mplab using the Dspic33fj64gp802 as the device.
in order to take advantage of things like MAC, and the things contained in the DSP library, is it necessary to program in some special way?

or does the C30 compiler do a good job of figuring out which sections of C code could and should be converted to code the DSP section of the DSPIC can process?

otherwise, without knowing how to implement the DSP section, it seems the dsPIC33f series would operate no differently than a PIC24 with a DAC built in.

thanks for any info or advice
