work in several places.  But a post to would be

This status report reflects the state as it sits in NetBSD-current as of
this message, so it may be until the next supscan for all sources to be
available via sup.


- alpha: Working.

- arm32: Problem with -msoft-float not turned on by default, which I'm
  investigating.  Otherwise works for C, not heavily tested for C++.  Will
  keep updated.

- i386: Working, reported by <>.

- m68k: Set up but not yet tested.  I need volunteer(s).

- mips[el]: Set up but not yet tested.  I need volunteer(s) or may do this

- mipseb: Not yet set up.  Some diffs need to go in for this.

- ns32k: This is unfortunately a big problem.  Our gcc 2.7.2 was very hacked
  from the mainline gcc sources, and I don't know what changes needed to go
  where.  Right now, ns32k.{c,h,md} are a big mess.

- powerpc: Working, reported by <>.

- sparc: Working, but REQUIRES a fix for a null pointer bug in the old gas
  assembler in order to compile -fPIC code.  The src/gnu/usr.bin/gas tree
  in -current has the fix, or a 1.3.x and higher binary is available from - install into "/usr/bin/as".

- vax: Set up but not yet tested.  I need volunteer(s).


- libgcc: Working (now in src/gnu/lib/libgcc).

- libf2c (libg2c): Not yet set up.

- libobjc: Working (now in src/gnu/lib/libobjc).

- libstdc++: Not yet set up.

===== OTHER TASKS =====

- Make tree useable for a host other than NetBSD: not yet done.

- Import binutils 2.9.1: not yet done.

- Import gdb 4.17: not yet done.

- Upgrade recursive-directory scripts: not yet done.
