Thanks so much for doing this. I was really overwhelmed seeing this and I'm really amazed
how the Amiga community is always standing together to support their beloved computer.

We're now at over $5,305 and even the GCC upstream developers are signing now that they
are interested completing the work [1]. So, I think it's safe to assume that GCC on m68k
will be saved :).

Thanks again for your help and thumbs up to everyone attending Amiwest!
