 Well, things like source dependencies, ... come to my mind.

 Mhmm ... I don't have too much time, I would be interested though.
 We'll see ...

 Meanwhile .. back to Alpha. With a divided compiling effort we should
 be careful if we have the same libraries and development system.
 I'm currently compiling libg++, which wasn't available for egcs until
 (hopefully) soon. 

 I'm currently using egcs-2.91.12 (from my site)
