For a past month I'm trying to help the minix project with upgrading the gcc version that they are using. This is due to the fact that the core developers believe that a bug in gcc is causing binary misalignement on Beagle Bone Black. My idea was to update the gcc in hope the newer versions would be free of that problem.
NetBSD currently uses gcc 5.3 and minix is still on 4.8, but I personally wanted to go to the latest 7.2.
Now the problem I have is that I don't really know how the netbsd build process looks like and whilst the gcc as a tool compiled without any problems when building on the target platform evbearm it fails.
