I would like to build a MacBSD-target gcc/ld on an intel machine, which
also has gcc as its default compiler.
Since folks at Cygnus are largely responsible for GCC's ability to
cross-compile at all, and because Mac hosting and targeting is one
of my specialties here, I can probably help people with various
issues (at least when I return from my vacation next week). Ideally,
saying "./configure --target=m68k-apple-netbsd" or some such should
be sufficient to build a cross-compiler from any host, and the m68k-*-netbsd
config does seem to be known to GCC proper, but not to GAS or LD or GDB.
So appropriate config bits will have to be added.
With a bit of work, it should be possible to build a complete MacBSD
using any host.
