Well there should be...

I know that the basic provisions each of the BSD's has for the ELF
binaries is there. However since I am no expert at the recent egcs
stuff and what it does and does not support I decided to cc: David
O'Brien on this. David's practically the main man behind the working
of egcs in FreeBSD.

I am sure he can comment at least on the linker/assembler/compiler
aspect for FreeBSD. I don't expect NetBSD nor OpenBSD to be much
