I'm willing to help, also.  I have a background in OS's, compilers,
parsers and long use of gcc/g++, but little porting background of gcc. 

I posses and have looked at the sources for the linux version, and also for 
the toolchain version for the files listed in the original message, but

that the Linux setup files seemed more detailed.
