The big problem is that binutils and gcc aren't maintained in a unified CVS
tree, yet there are hooks to use binutils from within a gcc tree. This
requires that the opcodes, bfd, gas, and ld directories be moved into the
gcc tree; the top level configure.in/config.guess be pulled from a single
source; and that some libiberty discrepancies be addressed first.
Now... I am writing up a proposal that I'll post to tech-toolchain tonight
that details what I want to do (bumped to Wednesday). It does use gnu/dist.
