I haven't tried egcs on a pmax at all. It's lower down my queue than
some kernel work:

   a) getting UVM to work.
   b) better debugging tools to handle early crashes (e.g., UVM).
   c) reworking the kernel autoconfiguration code.
   d) better Xserver and console support.

Changig compiler in the middle of that is the last thing I want
to do.

I know mrg has done some work and last I heard was waiting for a
faster machine.  Is more help needed to get egcs working on pmaxes?
