We need to get this stuff sorted - on these mailing lists, there's about
one toolchain post every 17 hours (30 messages over 22 days this month.)
We need to stop people having the need to (re-)build their toolchain as
the first thing they do when targetting a platform. It's not necessary.
The last toolchain I built was gcc 3.3 several months ago, and that very
toolchain is happy to build ARM7-based kernels up to Xscale-based kernels.
In order to kick off a set of pre-built toolchains, we need to put
together a list of what people require from the toolchain. For example:
* i386 cross compiler to ARM, supporting:
Feature ARMv4 ARMv5 Xscale
FPA Y N N
soft-float N Y Y
glibc Y Y Y
