Re: Packages removed from frozen

| A cross compiler for linux/alpha from a 32-bits linux isn't possible (at
| least for gcc; gcc can't handle a cross-compiler for a system with

GCC can handle a cross-compiler for 32->64 bits, the only problem is with
optimization which does not perform very well with such a cross-compiler,
but one should not care as the goal is to build a native 64 bits compiler
that can recompile itself with optimizations on.

Is there a list somewhere?
