Thanks -- BTW I made some simple changes to the tree structure in there
and added a few distcc [*] related scriptlets. The resulting tar ball:
can be made to work with Andrew's nice "xb" script with the following

In fact, it turns out OSDL's cross-compiler toolchains were built with
crosstool itself. Should also add that those OSDL compilers are too old
(gcc version 3.4.x-3.5.x mostly -- my build was totally spammed with those
"+m" in asm constraints related warnings), so I'll try and build a few
more recent ones (at least for the more popular platforms) over the
[*] But I'm a bit skeptical if the distcc stuff in "xb" works as intended.
Has anybody used that successfully? Will test it over the weekend ...
