       Build structure for gcc-2.95.2.  "libgcc" is compiled -fpic;
       "libgccP" is compiled -fPIC, only on platforms needing an alternate.

will you have libgccP be used automatically?  on the SPARC, anything
moderately large really needs -fPIC..  we currently build most things
with -fPIC there...

as long as things "just work" for the end-user, this would be fine.

everything else looks great, though i don't really get the point of
moving everything in to usr.bin/binutils...i'd just get rid of the
binutils directory there entirely.  i think, in particular, moving
GDB there is wrong.
