It depends. I think it is if we're officially going to support a port to
those targets. I intend only on having binutils build either the targets
where a cross-assembler package already exists (m68k) or where the target
is embedded and a port is anticipated. If the targets themselves could
run binutils, I would've said no, but it's kind of hard for embedded ports
that can't. The above comment only applies to binutils. You obviously
speak for gcc, so doing similar for gcc would be up to you.

Me either. I'm not sure it's a good idea to use gc on some of the targets
so far, though, since they're not terribly mature yet. I won't even go
into the Chill issues with gc (you probably already read today's thread on
Chill on the gcc list)... :-)

FYI, did Ben forward my build log to you (gpc bootstrap ICE)? Just
curious since, currently, Alpha has an older gpc package in the archive
since I couldn't build a newer one...
