Yes, 3.3 is very sweet, and, from what I hear, a done deal for 2.0
(but, what do I know? NGFTM).

I guess. Please see latest on tech-toolchain for (almost certainly
necessary ppc) changes.  May not be _all_ that's required, tho.

The long and the short is, it worked for me, on MPC823 port, but it is
needful for TPTB to bless and add to.

Again, thanks to all who helped us.

Kind regards,
