Appologies, I don't follow gcc development.  Did they just forget to add it 
in?  Or, has the 3.x branch not had support since the begining?

I was looking at the 3.3 release notes, and I'm a bit confused.  Why does the 
compiler need to have support for OS targets?  I thought ELF was generic to 
the CPU, and the OS loaded the binary and executed based on the instructions 
generated for the CPU target?
