Already in progress. I started down the list the other day and have a few
patches to submit to the BTS. In general, though, I'm going to keep my
mind on binutils, gcc, and glibc since I'm anticipating some problems
there (like tracking down that stupid C++ unaligned trap).

Sounds like a good plan :-)
Even with the freeze now rescheduled, it probably would be a good idea to
do the above anyway (at least when it comes to working on the stuff in the
failed build logs).
