Is it possible to use a similar scheme to sparc64? They use an egcs
version targetted to sparc64-linux rather than 'just sparc-linux'. Also,
binutils support was needed to allow sparc64 handle the sparc32 binaries,
etc (the patch was mostly to allow a sparc32-targetted binutils to handle
sparc64 binaries and linking).
Also, I'm assuming the proper support was added to the dynamic linker,
Does your current scheme include a different binutils as well? I may be
able to make a patch that does the same thing for HPPA as the sparc one
does for that platform...
