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.
