Or that was in 3.3 ?.. This fix is present in both gcc-3.4-3.4.3-6 and in my current 3.4 tree. You probably had some old version. However, the fix was missing in my 4.0 tree - adding it there. Than you for moving my attention to it. Some status information. 3.3 is ok for all targets. 3.4 was ok until very recent, but currently has problems on ia64 target, because of that new libunwind issues. Matthias decided to build libunwind from sources during gcc-3.4 build on ia64, and currently libunwind fails to cross-compile because it builds and runs a tool on package build, and does not handle cross-build situation properly. 4.0 built ok for several targets, but still is highly experimental. About x86 target: it is ok in 3.3, but fails with 3.4 because 3.4 tries to build multilib x86 compiler (for i386/amd64), and setting up proper cross-multilib environment is not currently possible because of ugly organization of amd64-libs and amd64-libs-dev packages (instead of creating multiarch environment,.they just divert lots of files from linux-kernel-headers and libc6-dev). Since there are hopes that after sarge debian will start to do proper multiarch infrastructure, I decided to postpone any futher work on this issue until then.
