It ( works for me doing a compile for Sun3 and Amiga on i386 (-current all around).  The only 'problem' with the cross-compile so far
is that the binutils-2.7's "strip" is broken.  Ezra Story has made up
patches to the current "strip" so that it works fine for m68k stuff
on i386 arch.  Let me know if either of you want it, and I'll tar it up.

I've been quite successful at doing Amiga and Sun3 cross-compiles on
i386 as of late, and hope to have a nice environment to build -current
snapshots weekly, or bi-weekly RSN.  Just waiting on some hardware at
the moment. ;-)
