I didn't think that 2.7.0 had actually been released yet.  Last I heard,
there was a pre-release candidate out there--I assumed that this had
leaked and that's what all the reports on gnu.bug.gcc (or whatever) were
actually complaining about.

2.7.0 should do that.  It works on i[345]86, m68k, mips, pc532, sparc,
and vax (at least, looking at the configure file).  I know for a fact
that it bootstraps, compares, and (mostly) passes c-torture-1.34 on the
m68k (NetBSD/mac68k, but the other m68ks should be identical).  The
"mostly" is for a structure packing test that isn't a major problem.
