Yes. Unless you use -march=armv4 the compiler will stick to ARMv3
instructions. (It's still safe to use -mtune=strongarm110 to get code
scheduled optimally for StrongARM; this might be a sensible default.)

Me too. What does it take to coordinate the build daemon? I can spend the
time but (of course) am not a registered Debianite.

I did take a look at the accelerated Xserver (as, I think, did Bdale and Jim
Pick before me; many have perished on this path) but didn't come up with
anything especially useful. That is indeed one of the areas where input from
Rebel would be a great help.
