Well, I don't recall seeing your message anywhere in my inbox, which
means that either I didn't get it, I accidentally refiled it to hell
and it's polluting another of my mail folders, or I accidentally
deleted it.

Given that i've recently been moving, I could believe that I did one
of the latter two, or even replied to it, and don't remember...  8-)

Unfortunately, the NetBSD patches can't be submitted for inclusion
into GCC at this time, because they were written while I was working
for a previous employer (CMU) which, despite a promise to the
contrary, has never been able to get me any sort of release for them
which make them acceptable to the FSF.

I would be interested in redoing those patches, however; please
contact me via seperate, private e-mail.
