Forgive me, but I know nothing about VxWorks.

My assumtion would be that just because GCC can target i960 and VxWorks
style binaries doesn't mean you can legaly generate them. If VxWorks is
anything like QNX is for their embedded systems, you will pay through the
nose for the libraries and headers you will require to generate a working

Presumably their libraries would be covered by a some kind of license and
it would not be possible for just anyone to fire up gcc and create a
working i960 VxWorks program..

Otherwise where does Wind River get their revenue from?
