	I had exactly the same problem with 1.0-pre3 and 1.0 on my Amiga.
I was just lazy, and replaced gcc2.6.1/include/stddef.h with 
/usr/include/stddef.h, rather than sorting things out and making all the 
patches.  As far as I can tell, gcc's stddef.h is just for use in making 
a cross-compiler, and setting defaults when the needed definitions are 
not found on an unknown system.
	It is good that someone is more productive than I, and has made proper 

	The same difficulties were encountered by everyone I know of who has 
compiled 2.6.1 on Amigas.  If you get the same report from any more systems, 
I'd say go ahead and send it in.

	I really don't feel like compiling again (takes 15 hours on an 030) 
to test, but your diffs do cover every definition I found missing.
