I am "actively" working on porting pkgsrc to A/UX (delayed as my box pooped 
out) and it is very likely that 2.95.x is the latest gcc that will ever be 
buildable on that system, as A/UX support was removed in 3.0.something IIRC.

So I'd say it's more a case of "someone _will_ want to use that"...just need a 
little more time to get there.
