That's not it. The cross pkgs are intended for OS's with a supplied API,
except when building for a completely generic target such as "m68k-coff".
(The generic targets would build only C support.)
Sure, I can have a powerpc-netbsd gcc use -nostdinc and point to a different
include tree, but the C++, ObjC, and F77 support all require a real API in
order to build and work properly. That's why I'll build a `bootstrap' set
of includes and libraries, to use with such a compiler.
My immediate wait is the current shaking out of egcs vs. netbsd bugs. Once
that's near completion, I'll roll a "cvs diff -rCYGNUS" and put it into the
bundle of egcs patches currently in pkgsrc/cross/COMMON/patches-egcs-ss.
