Great. I also passed it the --enable-haifa just for kicks, and also
because I'm not sure which targets would benefit from it (hopefully, the
Alpha will). It's compiling now and I should be ready to install it by
the end of today (it's a low-RAM UDB, after all). After that, I'll start
with the Fortran tests.

Have you built a kernel with it yet? I noticed in the FAQ that it has
some blurb about potential kernel-building problems, but I hadn't heard of
any such problems from the people I know that already use it.

Yep. They're simplistic, but effective.

Admittedly, know about as much about Fortran these days as I do
about..well...other stuff I don't know much about :P I used to write in
Fortran years ago, so I could probably at least figure some things out if
I run into them. Hopefully, though, I shouldn't have too many problems :)
