While on the topic of egcs64, I'm about to upload a newer one based on
the latest egcs cvs (I'll trim the source as much as possible). It
compiles the kernels still, better yet I actually have a 64bit libc.a
(glibc 2.1.1pre1) and compiled a simple source file with and it works.
Dynamic libraries aren't working due to a lack in a certain part of
egcs's TARGET_ARCH64 defines. The main difference is that this is
compiled as a cross sparc32->sparc64 compiler.

I'm still working on this. I'm also wondering if anyone has anymore
feedback on glibc 2.1.1 on non-sun4u systems. I am still unaware of
what is causing init to fail, and still haven't gotten my 1+ setup so
am unable to test it right now. Until we get that solved we are stuck
with 2.0.105.
