Actually, that is on my handwritten list -- as well as a couple other minor
things, and some Wasabi-related tasks that are of lesser interest to TNF in

I'll update the electronic list with these when I repost.  For the next week
or so I'll do a daily repost to keep the interested parties informed, and
also just in case there's insight from others that I may have overlooked.
(I'm catching a little flack, and rightfully so, for overlooking some
important details that don't necessarily affect a build of the base system.
This reposting is one part of atonement....  8-)

: What's todo on that, anyways - add any new files that weren't there
: before, and remove stale ones?

The set lists need to be made architecture-divergent for these bits, by
moving the old-toolchain files into ad.* (for mips/m68k/powerpc/sh3) or md.*
(everyone else), and putting the new toolchain bits into the appropriate
md.* lists (i386 and sparc64 at the moment).

My DESTDIR is rebuilding right now, so I should be able to get a correct
tally of the changes needed when it's done.  However, if you already have a
diff against the old lists, feel free to integrate it with the scheme above,
or send me a copy.  Note that a couple surprising things may show up in
these differences, like locale files; those aren't built/installed under the
new toolchain until a cross-capable mklocale exists.
