hmm..  I will give it a try, but it was my initial thought that doing it that
way would also move some things we didn't want to move out of /usr too, not
just the target specific stuff it puts in ${prefix}/i386-mingw32

I could find no example of anyone doing this with any of the other packaged
compilers, or anywhere else for that matter..  There is a thread on -policy
and in #33251 about it though.

Ok, thanks.  I'll try and get a package into incoming later today.
